ACERO’s Victoria Chapter was honoured to have participated in ‘Ecumenical Choral Evening Prayers for the Church in the Middle East’ at St Paul’s Cathedral, Melbourne on 10 August 2014 at the invitation of the Anglican Church in Australia.
ACERO’s Chapter members were invited to display information concerning the current crisis facing Assyrian Christians in Iraq and ACERO’s relief response. Informational booklets on ACERO’s work were also distributed to the large number of attendees.
The Rev’d Fr Antawan Mikhail of the Assyrian Church of the East in Victoria offered a lection reading in Aramaic. Other prayers and hymns were offered by various ecumenical leaders for the Christians of the Middle East.
