ACERO was delighted to this week support the faithful members of St George’s Church in Kirkuk, Iraq celebrate the Holy Feast of the Ascension through our London, UK Headquarters.

In connection with the feast day, one of the 7 major feast days in the liturgical calendar of the Assyrian Church of the East, the faithful of the church held a church service and social function. 45 girls dressed as brides per the ancient Assyrian tradition to celebrate the feast day.

The celebration was marked by a program including hymns and the distribution of gifts to the participants. Students who had recently received strong results in their studies were also recognised and awarded for their efforts.
