We are excited to announce that Parish Priest, Fr. Mesrop Ash, will be leading a pilrimage to Armenia from September 24 - October 10, 2014. This will be a wonderful opportunity for the faithful of the Bay Area to experiance the Hayrenik, our ancestral homeland.

This pilgrimage will travel to all the essential sites of Armenian heritage, including Holy Etchmiadzin, Khor Virab, Lake Sevan, Dilijan, Artsakh, and more.

Trip includes:

  • Round-trip economy Airfare
  • Full Transportation and transfer in Armenia
  • Breakfast and lunch/dinner according to the itinerary
  • Double-occupancy hotel accommodation in a 4-star hotel
  • Visa for Kharabagh

This pilgrimage is being coordinated through Mer Hooys or House of Hope, a mission of the Western Diocese, which provides opportunities to young adult women from disadvantaged lifestyles in Armenia so they may achieve a productive and secure future. Participants will have the opportunity to visit the Mer Hooys facility in Armenia, and meet the young women whose lives are being changed. The travel details are being arranged by Sima Travel.
