The Board of Trustees appreciates the compliance and patience of our parishioners during the pandemic.
“The Armenian Church cannot and should no longer ignore the imperatives of the changing times. It must not only react; it must become proactive. This is no longer a question of choice; it has become an urgent necessity. This is no longer an abstract or abstruse concept, but an issue of existential nature and scope.
The Church has the great task and urgent responsibility to re-Christianize our life. It must take Christian faith beyond its liturgical expressions and institutional confines. The Christian faith should become a living reality in the daily life of each Armenian. The Armenian Church must not become merely the custodian of the Christian faith; it must become the messenger of the Gospel of Christ.”
This is the challenge given to us from His Holiness Catholicos Aram I of the Great House of Cilicia. We welcome you to join us in this journey towards renewal, as we work to make the Christian faith a living part of our daily lives.
