War in Artsakh

Dear all, We are all keenly aware of the horrific situation that our homeland is in, even and especially now with a cessation of hostilities. Our enemies remain our enemies. I know that this present reality is unacceptable for each person who is of Armenian origin, and is the darkest day perhaps worse than April 24, 1915. We need to consolidate and unite, support and pray as a nation and church now more than ever and always ask the Lord to have mercy on us. Let us rebuild now, and make our nation better than ever. Please give to the www.armeniafund.org even until it HURTS!! Deny yourself for our nation and our identity. Prayerfully with great hope and love, Fr. Shnork, Pastor

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
