About St. Kevork Armenian Church of Portland
Our Church is the Oregon and Southwest Washington Parish of the Western Diocese of the Armenian Apostolic Church of North America. Our local Armenian-American community is made up of over 250 families. Many of our members are second, third and fourth generation Armenian Americans, whereas many others come from Armenia and the various other countries of the Armenian Diaspora.
Our church is served by a visiting Parish Priest, Father Yeghia from Seattle, who attends to two Badarak services a month. We also have other visiting Priests for special occasions. Our local church is also served by our Deacon, Kevork Parseghian. The Church is led by a seven member Parish Council who run the church according to the guidlines of the Western Diocese of the Armenian Church.
We are a thriving community of both young and old, and St.Kevork church is an important component for the spiritual and cultural health of this community.
