On Friday, November 17, 2023, His Holiness Catholicos Aram I of the Holy See of Cilicia of the Armenian Apostolic Church visited the Archdiocese Headquarters during his Pontifical visit to the United States of America. In his welcoming remarks, His Eminence Archbishop Elpidophoros of America expressed gratitude for the close relationship between the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese and the Armenian Prelacy, thanking His Holiness Catholicos Aram I for his strong commitment to “ecumenical witness” and “mutual support and encouragement.” His Eminence also shared his prayers for the Armenians suffering in Artsakh and his hopes for a peaceful end to global conflicts. “As People of Faith” Archbishop Elpidophoros said, “we trust in the Lord’s will that His peace will reign upon the earth, even as it is in the Kingdom of Heaven. But we must work diligently toward that end. And until such peace is found, we must minister and serve those whose lives have been torn apart by conflict.”
