Armenian Church

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. Each Parish Council member is expected to serve in the spirit of that responsibility.

The Parish Council is in active communication and contact with the parishioners and organization chairs, and is not an elite hierarchical body. As elected officials, Parish Council members are the representative voice of the faithful as a community.

Parish Council members lead by example, by striving to be good church members and models to the rest of the congregation. They take personal interest in all activities of the parish by furthering education, communication and youth activities, helping the needy, the unfortunate and the sick, and delegating responsibility. Parish Council works collaboratively with the Parish Priest who is responsible for the parish as a whole and acts as the president of the Parish Council.
