Part of the new school building in Birds' NestThe Birds' Nest”, an orphanage directly supported by the Catholicosate of Cilicia is the home of our entire nation. As the shelter of Armenian children in need of care, it is the center of attention to all the philanthropists of the Armenian nation.
 
As an expression of continued Pontifical support for the “Birds' Nest”, Catholicos Aram I recently appointed V. Rev. Yeghishe Mandjigian as the new spiritual dean and Mr. Kevork Toroyan as its new principal. The new heads of this institution work hard - in consultation with His Holiness and the board of trustees - to create a cozy Armenian environment and make the Armenian children happier.
 
This orphanage, which has provided love and care to Armenian orphans and wiped off the tears from their eyes, has been carrying out its mission for over 90 years under the umbrella of the Armenian Church and by the generous support of the Armenian donors.
