Jerusalem Patriarch Meets Aram I

Archbishop Nourhan Manougian

ANTELIAS—Archbishop Nourhan Manougian, the Patriarch of Jerusalem, today visited the Holy See of Cilicia and met with Catholicos Aram I.

The Great House of Cilicia reports that the Patriarch’s visit was of a personal nature.

The two religious leaders are said to have discussed a number of issues including church matters and issues related to Armenia and the Armenian people.

The visit comes on the heels of a tersely worded letter sent by the Patriarch of Jerusalem to Catholicos Garegin II calling on him to reinforce the Armenian Church’s “spiritual foundations,” which the Patriarch says have been waning.
