BEIRUT. – Catholicos Aram I of the Great House of Cilicia of the Armenian Apostolic Church continues to be in contact with the clergy members of Syria’s Armenian community and to follow their activities, the Great House of Cilicia press service informs.  

Learning about some Syrian-Armenia families’ financial difficulties, the Catholicos allocated money to the Armenian Diocesan Headquarters, to cater for food and other necessities.   

He underscored the need to provide support to Syria’s Armenian community.
