Members of the Assyrian Baz Association have met with His Beatitude Mar Meelis Zaia AM, Metropolitan of Australia, New Zealand and Lebanon.
The visit was headed by the President of the Assyrian Baz Association, Matthew Martin, who explained to His Beatitude the Association’s charitable works.
His Beatitude stressed the need to raise the community’s awareness of charitable organisations and employ their efforts in the dedication to community services through various activities. The need to involve the younger generation in managing and initiating activities was also highlighted.
Again, His Beatitude stressed that the church is working to support generosity as seen through the aid of the Assyrian Church of the East Relief Organisation (ACERO) which was founded by the Church.
ACERO and other forms of aid offered by the Church exist to establish programs with the aim of serving children and advancing society, including: educational institutions and services, religious and nationalistic associations.
His Beatitude wished success for the Assyrian Baz Association and all other institutions and associations that serve the community.[nggallery id=200]
