Leaders of a coalition of Assyrian political organizations have paid a courtesy visit to His Grace Mar Awa Royel, Bishop of California and Secretary of the Holy Synod, in Modesto, California.
The high-profile Assyrian-Iraqi delegation was comprised of Assyrian political parties and groups who have in recent months gathered together to form a united front in order to better present the needs and aspirations of our Assyrian people in our ancestral homeland of Iraq.
His Grace welcomed the delegation to the state of California on 10 September, and prayed for the success of their endeavors in Bet-Nahrain.
The delegation has met with other religious leaders, in particular with His Holiness Mar Dinkha IV, Catholicos Patriarch of the Assyrian Church of the East, in Chicago and other cities in the United States where the greatest concentration of Assyrians live in the American diaspora.
In California, the delegation will visit Modesto-Turlock and San Diego. Other major cities such as Phoenix, Arizona and Detroit, Michigan are also scheduled to be visited by the delegation.[nggallery id=254]
