Fr. Hovnan & Yn. Anna took a family trip to Armenia this Summer, the first time they had been back in nine years! Along with catching up with family, it was also a chance to interface to meet with ongoing mission partners and beneficiaries and make connections for future mission work.
The Parish Council requested that Fr. Hovnan & Yn. Anna bring $3,000 from Armenia/Artsakh relief designated funds to apply directly to individuals and families in need, with a preference for Artsakh refugee needs. Upon return, Fr. Hovnan reported to the parish council on the distributed aid to 7 families and 2 organizations.
