HIS HOLINESS ARAM I

Dr. Guirgis Saleh was among those who visited Antelias on Monday 29 June
2009. Mrs. Seta Hadeshian, Director of the Unit Life and Service,
accompanied him.

The purpose of the visit was to consult with His Holiness Aram I, a
President of the Middle East Council of Churches (MECC), on the
restructuring report to the Executive Committee Meeting in 17 July 2009. The
MECC is currently facing difficulties that call for its radical
reorganization. His Holiness Aram I advised the General Secretary to take
into account the current financial crisis and the status of ecumenical
relations in the proposal to the Executive Committee.
