On Saturday, July 8, Fr. Abraham held an orientation meeting with the members of Holy Martyrs’ first parish pilgrimage to Armenia. The pilgrimage, which will take place from August 1 – 12, includes 35 pilgrims from different parishes in the tri-state area. The orientation meeting was a great way for the pilgrims to meet each other and to discuss their upcoming trip. The gathering included a fellowship, a video presentation on Yerevan, a PowerPoint presentation with useful facts and tips for the pilgrimage and the opportunity to ask Fr. Abraham questions about Armenia. Many thanks to Aram Ciamician for coordinating the presentations and to the Ciamician Family for preparing a lovely fellowship table.
