FAR helps family in Artsakh
 

Every Day, Violetta Prays for Peace: An Artsakh Family Aided by FAR


Violetta Saghyan, age 72, spent the first days of the Artsakh war in a bathrobe, seeking a safe place to shelter from Azeri attacks. For three days she moved from village to village in her region of Artsakh.
 
On the third day, Violetta’s grown daughter Lusine pleaded with Violetta to leave Artsakh with her. A citizen of Stepanakert, Lusine had strong memories from her childhood of hiding in bunkers during the Karabagh War in the early 1990s. She was adamant her own children would not have the same experience, but she was anxious about leaving her mother behind.
 
So together they fled for Armenia, along with Lusine's five young children, ranging in ages from eleven down to two: Aghvan, Yervand, Yester, Arman, and baby Hayk.
 
With no time to pack, they only managed to take a few bags with them, mostly filled with children’s clothes. While they anticipated a ten-day stay in Armenia, the family has now been away from home for over a month, with their return now in question. They were able to seek temporary shelter in Dzoraghbyur, Armenia, in the home of a local family who warmly welcomed them as their guests.
 
The Saghyan family is among the many displaced Armenians from Artsakh, currently receiving emergency assistance from the Fund for Armenian Relief. The outreach from FAR has helped to relieve some of the distress felt by both the Saghyans and their generous host family. Learn more about FAR’s ongoing work among our people in the homeland, by reading FAR’s blog.
Prayer Request
Call during the week to request prayers, hokehankist, visitations to the sick, and house blessings. Please let Church office know if you are planning to have Hokehankist Service. It would be appreciated to have a light lunch or coffee hour following Badarak in memory of the deceased.
ALTAR FLOWERS
Altar flowers are a gift to the church. If a family wants to decorate the church with flowers, they are free to do so. If the family needs flowers for the reception hall or cemetery they should make prior arrangements.
 
Altar flowers donated by Mrs. Varsenig Nakutis in memory of her brother Haigazoun Terterian
Home or Hospital Bound
As an extended family of St. Gregory, many of our sick, elderly and home bound faithful are unable to attend Church. They may be at home or in the hospital but most importantly: They are not forgotten and we would like to make sure to visit them. If you know of someone who is unable to attend Church or is in need of a pastoral visitation, please inform Fr. Paren directly Email: armenianchurchorlando@gmail.com  or call the church office at 407-876-7732.
The Parish Council of Soorb Haroutiun Armenian Church of Orlando is looking forward to restart the Women's Guild in our church. We are asking those who are ready to help and interested on this to contact our Chairman Mr. John Shahinian or call to church office.
