War in Artsakh

Dear all, We are all keenly aware of the horrific situation that our homeland is on. Our enemies would seek to annihilate us from our lands. Today, Armenian men and women are fighting valiantly to preserve and keep their homeland while the enemies of peace continue to strike even civilian targets. I know that this is unacceptable for each person who is of Armenian origin, related to an Armenian, a member of the Armenian community and church through association, marriage or friendship and even our friends who are lovers of peace, and we all want to be a “soldier” for Armenia and Artsakh in various ways. You can and must join this fight now and here are some very important ways and links that will help direct you to where you can donate funds for the support of #Artsakh and where you can easily make your voice heard! Please giver and give sacrificially even until it HURTS!! Deny yourself for our nation and our identity. Prayerfully with great hope and love, Fr. Shnork, Pastor

Our mission is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The following account was taken from the church’s 75th Diamond Jubilee booklet and was written in 1988. It covers the years 1875 through 1988. As part of the preparations for the church’s 90th anniversary this article is being update to include the past 16 years. When completed, it will be posted here. The Armenian settlement of Providence was an extension of the Worcester community. It is said that in 1875 Hagop Boghigian arrived in America and settled in Massachusetts. He wrote to his relatives and friends in the Old Country and informed them that there were many opportunities for work in Worcester. Read More
