Welcome to St. Mary Armenian Apostolic Orthodox Church
Our Mission Statement
The mission of the Armenian Church is to preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and to proclaim its message of salvation. This mission is realized through Worship, Education, Witness, Service and common life in Christ as expressed in the distinctive faith-experience of the Armenian people. All members of the Armenian Church - both clergy and lay - are to participate fully in this mission.
ABOUT OUR CHURCH
Our church was consecrated in 1998. However, St. Mary's parish is the continuation of the first Armenian Church of Miami, which was named St. John the Baptist Armenian Church. It was established in 1951.
We have a Sunday religious school and Armenian language school for children and teenagers. We also hold annual summer Vacation Bible Camp. Our newly formed Armenian Church Youth Organization of America (ACYOA) is also an active part of our parish.
Church services, worship, Holy Badarak, and Great Lent prayer services take place throughout the year. Our Sunday morning Divine Liturgy begins at 10:30 AM and ends around 12:15 PM. A fellowship and coffee hour follows the church services. Occasionally, luncheon is also served.
