The Armenian Church Today



The Armenian Church today is dispersed throughout every continent of the world. Scattered about from centuries of attempting to escape persecution and most recently the Genocide of 1915 - 1923, Armenians have established communities and built churches wherever their fatedelivered them. As the balance of the Armenian population has shifted throughout time, the Church has strived to meet the needs of her people. She has a distinct hierarchy, which maintains a balance within the Church herself. The center of this balance has always been the Catholicosate of All Armenians, and the heart of the Church, where She receives her lifeblood, is the global headquarters of the Armenian Church, the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin.

Through the visionary leadership of His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, and the spiritual guidance of the Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, our Seminaries, Patriarchates, Dioceses, Parishes and most importantly, Clergy and faithful of the Armenian Church have played an active role in shaping our future today. Their collective strength has created a net that has been cast across the world.

This section provides the most current and relevant information on His Holiness Karekin II, along with an archive of his Sermons, Special Messages, and Encyclicals. Up to date specifics on the backbone of the Armenian Church, her worldwide clergy, Patriarchates, Dioceses, Parishes and Seminaries, is also provided. Links to websites and contact information are provided where available. As information changes this section will be updated appropriately.
