Welcome to the
Բարի գալուստ Օսթինի հայկական համայնք
We are a small but fast-growing community of Armenians living in the greater Austin area. Our ultimate goal is to have a space of our own, but until then, we are organizing events, holiday celebrations, and fundraisers all while promoting and preserving our culture.
Please connect with us on our social media channels below to get the latest information about what we are doing.
Our mission is to make Christ's presence known in Austin through prayer, worship and community according to the rich faith and traditions of the Orthodox faith of the Armenian Church. To celebrate and enjoy the culture, language & traditions of the Armenian people as one loving and unified community.
We hold worship services several times a year depending on the availability of clergy to visit. Our visiting pastor is The Reverend Fr. Yeprem Kelegian, who resides in Racine, Wisconsin. We are grateful for his presence and spiritual leadership in our community. Please check the calendar of events for upcoming service.
Currently our place of worship is St. Elias Orthodox Church, located downtown at 408 E. 11th Street Austin, TX
We thank our friends at St. Elias Orthodox Church for the use of their beautiful sanctuary for our worship services.
It is our dream to have a building of our own, one that can double as a community space for worship, socializing, and cultural events alike. A church can look like many different things in the very beginning—a leased house, a space in an office building, a suite in a strip mall, or a piece of property of our very own.
Our goal is to start small and grow. We are currently in the research stage, exploring all possibilities to decide what is best for our growing community.
We welcome all donations to help us reach our goal.
