YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–Chairman of the Executive Council of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation of Armenia Hrant Margarian–member of the Executive Council and member of Parliament Armen Rostomian–and member of the Party’s Bureau Viken Hovsepian visited Catholicos Karekin II last week to extend their congratulations upon the Pontiff’s election.
The participants of the meeting noted with regret that the election of the Catholicos coincided with the tragic October 27 events. His Holiness called the elections of the Catholicos during those difficult days as a consolation for the people.
Karekin II stressed that the most important mission of the Armenian Apostolic Church is to continue educating people on Christian principles and create its moral and spiritual image. His Holiness voiced confidence that the Church will always feel the support of the state and political parties.
