The Parish Council is the governing body elected by parish members to guide the parish in its spiritual, educational and financial endeavors, in cooperation with the pastor.
The Parish Council members form a team dedicated to the mission of maintaining the church as a source and center of Christian teachings and life.
They strive to make the church a place where all Armenian Christians congregate to participate in worship, learning, fellowship and service, and
receive spiritual solace, joy, hope, and forgiveness.
