Parish Council

Parish Council

Throughout Armenian Church history, lay parishioners have been privileged to take an active role in the administrative phases of our church. These lay leaders provide the foundation for closer understanding and cooperation between the parish priest and the community which he serves. As the administrative issues of our parish became more complex, it became imperative to create a body of parishioners to relieve the parish priest of some of his burdens and also to carry out the administrative work of the church. This administrative group, known as the Parish Council, consists in our parish of eleven lay members and has as its president our parish priest. In 1956, the Building Committee officers were appointed as the first Parish Council until new elections could be held upon the completion of the church and the parish.

To be elected a Parish Council member is a great honor which carries with it a great responsibility, long hours of work and unlimited devotion and love to the Armenian Church. It must be said, without hesitation, that our church has been very fortunate in finding eminently qualified, conscientious and devoted men and women to serve on the Parish Council. These individuals, together with a large number of other lay parishioners, have made our church grow from a dream to a glorious reality.
