The final social-psychology meeting of 2017 took place on December 22 at the office of Aleppo Compatriotic Charitable Organization-NGO (Aleppo-NGO).
The meeting was once again led by Father Pargev Palgevorgyan, the pastor of St. Hakob Church in Mrgavan. Father Pargev continued his series on the seven sacraments of the Armenian church, this week speaking about the sacrament of Holy Communion. The attendees learned about the importance of this sacrament in Christian life as it symbolizes the union of people with God.
The free, social-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.
Meetings will resume following the holidays, on January 12, 2018, and will continue every Friday at the Aleppo-NGO office. The address is 11 Northern Avenue, -1 floor.
