Western Diocese of the Armenian Church of North America - Hampar Hall
3325 North Glenoaks Boulevard
Burbank, CA


The Armenian Professionals Network (APN) of the Western Diocese invites you to learn about the challenges of growing up deaf in a hearing society and the role of the Armenian Church in reaching out to the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing community.

HEAL--Helping Everyone Access the Liturgy is an APN Project, which aims "to serve the spiritual and social needs of all Western Diocese community members by facilitating access to the rites, ritual and teachings of the Armenian Apostolic Church; and especially, understanding the significance of the Armenian Divine Liturgy.

"HEARING THE UNHEARD" panelists will share their personal experiences and perspectives about people who have been affected by deafness for a deeper understanding of the challenges, issues, and prejudices that deaf and hard-of-hearing people face on a daily basis.

The program will be interpreted in ASL (American Sign Language).

All are welcome.
