Dr. Hratch Tchilingirian lectured recently at Haigazian University on "The Armenian Community of Abkhazia." 

Tchilingirian described the overall situation in Abkhazia, which lies on the northeastern shores of the Black Sea and has a territory of 8,600 sq km. Abkhazia was an autonomous republic within Georgia during the Soviet period. With its wonderful climate and developed infrastructure for tourism, it was considered the "Riviera" of the Soviet Union. Successive Soviet leaders from Stalin onwards had their summer resorts in Abkhazia. About 1.5 million tourists visited Abkhazia annually in Soviet times, when its total population was only half a million. Agriculture was also a very successful sector of the economy, and Abkhazia had one of the highest GDPs in the Soviet Union.

Prelacy Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Clergy Conference

Armenian Prelacy Celebrates 25th Anniversary of the Annual Sts. Ghevontiants Clergy Conference 

Armenian Reporter International [Paramus] 01 Apr 2000: 14.

Antranig Baljian 

Twenty-five years ago, in February of 1975, the Prelate Archbishop Karekin Sarkissian of blessed memory (later Catholicos of Cilicia and, even later, of All Armenians), conceived and organized a gathering of clergy from throughout the Prelacy to observe the Feast Day of Sts. Ghevontiank. This very first gathering of its kind took place at St. Gregory Armenian Apostolic Church in Indian Orchard, Massachusetts. For twenty-five years, this annual event has been observed in various communities throughout the Prelacy. This year, by arrangement of His Eminence Archbishop Oshagan, Prelate of the Armenian Apostolic Church of the Eastern United States and Canada, this observance was again held in the parish where it all began twenty-five years ago.

The keynote speaker for the conference was Mr. Hratch Tchilingirian, who has been involved in many church-related and national organizations. His topic was "The Challenges Facing the Armenian Apostolic Church in the Twenty-first Century," focusing on what the church's mission should be in today's world.
