Bazaar Fundraiser

Dear friends and parishioners,

By now we know that all major church income generating events will not take place this year: The Khachaturian Armenian Community Center Saroyan Hall will not generate any income. The Annual Church Banquet is cancelled this year. The most painful of all, our famous Annual Food Festival and Bazaar which generates more than $120,000 of pure income and covers one third of the church budget, for the first time in our Church History will not take place this year.

It is clear that we are going to face a financial crisis this year and the damage can be severe if we do not step up and do our part; however, we the Board of Trustees will do our best to reduce the expenses of our Parish and Church, and we will readjust the budget balance sheet without compromising the most needed care and maintenance of all our assets and buildings, so that when time comes, we are ready to reopen.

Therefore, we reach out to you, dear Parishioners, so that together with our efforts and your donations, we cover this financial loss and help our Church to get out of this predicament. Rest assured that our Heavenly Father will bless you tenfold for all your virtuous deeds.

Thanking you in advance and wishing you all healthy and safe days,

Pastor and Board of Trustees
