Archbishop Anoushavan Tanielian
Prelate of the Eastern Prelacy
of the Armenian Apostolic Church
We express our congratulations on your reelection as Prelate of the Eastern Prelacy of the United States with deep spiritual satisfaction.
Indeed, this step taken by the National Representative Assembly could not be anything but the outcome of the devoted service you have offered over the past four years, with profound zeal and in full cooperation with the community leadership. This service dates back to your long years of tireless work at the Prelacy.
We are pleased to reaffirm that you have always cooperated closely with the Holy See, in particular bringing the active participation of your Prelacy to the assistance to the Lebanese Armenian community. On this occasion, once again we express our great appreciation to you, the leadership of the Prelacy, and the people.
It is our fatherly desire that Most Loving God may grant health and renewed spirit of service to you and every member of the leadership of the Eastern Prelacy. We pray that God gives His blessing to your mission, for the glory of our Holy Church and in the service of the people who have been entrusted to your spiritual care.
With greetings of fatherly love,
CATHOLICOS ARAM I
