To make Christ's presence known in Austin through prayer, worship and community according to the rich faith and traditions of the orthodox faith of the Armenian Church.
To celebrate and enjoy the culture, language and traditionsof the Armenian people as one loving and unified community.
To contribute to the betterment of our community, the Armenian homeland, and the world through charitable works, and by working together for justice and peace.
Since we do not own a church or have an Armenian priest residing here in Austin, we hold worship services several times a year depending on the availability of clergy to travel to Austin.
Our visiting pastor is The Revered Fr. Yeprem Kelegian, who resides in Racine, Wisconsin. Our Divine Liturgies are typically followed by a fellowship hour with coffee, snacks or dinners and sometimes a cultural program. These are usually on, or close to the major feast days of the Armenian Church, including Christmas, Easter, Assumption and the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.
Most of our communication with the community is by email. We always send out notices by email of our upcoming worship, cultural, and social events. Please visit our “Contact” page, and fill out our brief form, and we will ensure that you receive all notifications. NEXT SERVICE: March 31, 2pm - St. Elias Orthodox Church, located downtown at 408 E. 11th Street
