One Cause, Many Faiths – Uniting Voices for Armenians in Captivity by AIWA LA

January 4, 2024

Los Angeles, CA – The Armenian International Women’s Association (AIWA) is coordinating “One Cause, Many Faiths – A Call for the Release of Armenian Prisoners” a special liturgical observance and ecumenical prayer service dedicated to the Armenians in captivity in Azerbaijan. This event will take place on Wednesday, January 17, 2024, from 5:00 PM to 6:30 PM at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in downtown Los Angeles.

In the spirit of unity and solidarity, AIWA invites the community of both Armenian and non-Armenian religious groups to come together for an evening of prayer and reflection, bringing attention to Armenian prisoners in captivity in Azerbaijan and advocating for their release and freedom. Through bridging faiths, cultures, and communities, we aim to underscore our shared humanity and the urgent need for action to uphold the dignity and rights of these individuals and their loved ones.

The liturgical observance will feature speakers by esteemed local politicians and other community leaders who will share their thoughts on the importance of solidarity and collective action; musical interludes with a selection of Armenian Liturgical pieces, enriching the spiritual atmosphere of the event; presentation from the Center for Truth and Justice to provide valuable insights and information regarding the situation of Armenians in captivity in Azerbaijan; and an Armenian ensemble will lend its voices to the occasion, filling the cathedral with the moving and powerful sounds of traditional Armenian hymns.

We, at AIWA, call upon all members of the community, regardless of faith or background, to join us in demonstrating the strength and spirit of unity in action.
