2011 Annual Appeal
11 December 2011
The Eastern Diocese has launched its 2011 Annual Appeal—the only Diocesan-wide fundraiser conducted each year to help the Diocese undertake the many ministries, programs, and resources that enrich life in our local parishes.
This year's appeal honors the 40th anniversary of Archbishop Khajag Barsamian's ordination into the holy priesthood of the Armenian Church. The first $700,000 raised in the appeal will fund the Diocese's operating budget; but all funds raised beyond that amount will be used to establish a special endowment in our Primate's honor.
The new "Archbishop Khajag Barsamian Endowment" will nourish vibrant existing programs, and allow the Diocese to expand into dynamic new ministries—such as support for lay ministry.
