ABOUT OUR LADY OF ARMENIA
With the independence of Armenia, the dream of the Armenian Sisters of the Immaculate Conception to serve in the Homeland became a reality. Following the horrible earthquake of 1988, the Sisters had already come to Armenia to console the grief of our nation.
Today, the Order has an orphanage, a Vocational School and a Day-Care Center for the Elderly in Gyumri, a Day-Care Center in Tashir, a Summer Camp in Tsaghkadzor, a Youth Center in Yerevan and a Convent in Javakhq, Georgia. The Sisters teach catechism and do pastoral work in many of the Catholic villages of the regions of Shirak, Tashir, and Southern Georgia.
The mission of the Our Lady of Armenia Center is to secure the overall development of orphaned, abandoned and needy children.
The Center strives to create an atmosphere where the child can develop his/her mental, spiritual, social, physical and emotional abilities. The Center also aims to provide its teenagers the necessary means to become educated, skilled, independent and self-sufficient adults.
