Dear Diocesan Donors:
At the Eastern Diocese our donors are our most important resource. Through their generosity, our donors not only support the Eastern Diocese as an institution, but also actively preserve Armenian faith and culture here in America. Every year we ask for your help—and every year you respond generously by supporting our Annual Appeal and other fundraising initiatives.
We’re tremendously grateful, and we want to take this moment to ask you: How are we doing? We want to receive your thoughts and feedback on your experience, both as a donor and as a church member. Please click on the button below to answer our brief survey. Respondents will receive a special thank-you gift: a high-quality print of Armenia’s natural beauty, reproduced from our most recent Diocesan calendar.
We are currently gearing up to host the Diocese’s inaugural “Donor Recognition Day” on Thursday, September 15, 2016. Diocesan Primate Archbishop Khajag Barsamian will preside over the gathering on the outdoor plaza of St. Vartan Cathedral in New York City, in the company of clergy and lay leaders, staff members, and local young professionals. I want to extend a personal invitation to every one of our donors to join us on that occasion. Enjoy wine, hors d’oeuvres, and conversation as you see for yourselves the significant role you play in the church’s life.
Donor Recognition Day is just one of several upcoming events the Diocese is planning for the fall. We look forward to welcoming you to our events marking the 25th anniversary of Armenia’s independence, which include a bike ride to Governors Island on Saturday, September 17, as well as an art exhibit and concert on Wednesday, September 21. A “Mozart Requiem” performance by the St. Vartan Cathedral Choir will take place on Saturday, October 15. Please check our website, www.armenianchurch-ed.net, for information on these events and on gatherings in our local parish communities.
As always, please feel free to contact me at any time with any of your questions or concerns.
