PRELATE CALLS FOR PRAYERS AND AID FOR TORNADO VICTIMS
Archbishop Oshagan has instructed parishes of the Eastern Prelacy to
offer prayers for the victims and survivors of the tornado that
a twenty-mile area in Oklahoma. The massive storm destroyed homes,
businesses, and schools on Monday. Besides the tragic loss of life,
children in a school in the direct path of the storm, many families
have lost their homes, cars, and all of their worldly possessions.
His Eminence has asked our parishes to offer special prayers for those
who died and those who survived during the Divine Liturgy this Sunday,
May 26, and to pass a special offering plate for donations to help the
survivors. Donations will be forwarded to the American Red Cross on
behalf of the parishes of the Eastern Prelacy of the Armenian Church.
