A socio-psychological assistance meeting took place today, February 2, 2018, at the office of Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Organization-NGO (Aleppo-NGO).
Today’s guest speaker was Father Pargev Palgevorgyan, the pastor of St. Hakob Church in Mrgavan. Father Pargev finished the series of the seven sacraments of the Armenian Apostolic church, this time speaking on the sacrament of Anointing of the sick. The participants of the meeting learned that the anointing of the sick is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death. It is most likely one of the last sacraments one will receive.
The free, socio-psychological assistance meetings at Aleppo-NGO provide support to Syrians who went through the war and find themselves experiencing psychological side effects, helping them to recover and become actively involved in the civil life of Armenia.
The meetings take place every Friday at the Aleppo-NGO office. The address is 11 Northern Avenue, -1 floor.
