“Preserving the Armenian Identity is a serious challenge in the Diaspora”
His Holiness Catholicos Aram I of the Holy See of Cilicia has invited Armenian intellectuals from all over the world to discuss the challenges and difficulties of “Preserving the Armenian Identity”. Minister of the Diaspora Hranush Hagopian and 5 intellectuals from Armenia, historian Yervant Pamboukian along with more than 30 Diasporan Armenians of various ages, experiences, and specialties are invited to the gathering.
His Holiness has stated that “It is very important to avoid superficial, partial and temporary issues, we have to think together about the serious challenges that our nation and fatherland are facing. The Identity of the Diasporan Armenian is in a retreat, and Armenian organizations that are destined to preserve the Armenian identity have become less powerful. And we cannot remain indifferent about these circumstances.”
The meeting will take place on Tuesday 11, Wednesday 12, and Thursday 13th July 2017 at St. Mary Monastery of Bikfaya.
