2024 marks our parish’s 100th year. Bishop Parmsamyan had the opportunity to visit our church and cemetery while in between his busy schedule recently and he remarked how beautiful and peaceful our sanctuary and grounds were. I like to think that it is a reflection of our ancestral heritage. We respect those who have gone before us and literally built the church with shovels and brooms and nickels and dimes.

     A century later, we are here. Some families can trace themselves to that era but what is interesting are the new faces and names who have found a home here at 909 Michigan. The early families were right, out of sadness and loss Faith will grow. I’m glad that from the altar I can see the third and fourth (and now 5th!) generations of the grandparents in the pews as well as new people who have discovered the message of the Armenian Church.

Panel Discussion: Repair and Resilience - the Legacy of Genocide Across Generations
July 17, 2024 6:30 pm on site and online

Join Illinois Holocaust Museum and 3G Chicago for an extraordinary intergenerational conversation with four descendants of genocides across geography and time. As inheritors of a history they never lived, the past reverberates in their lives, families, communities, and nations. These descendants will share how the legacy of genocide continues to impact current and future generations, exploring the power of memory and strength found in resilience, and how coping with such a legacy offers an opportunity to discover our collective humanity.

The conversation will feature Laura Ouk, daughter of Cambodian genocide survivors, Joe Kanengiser, 3rd generation descendant of Holocaust Survivors, Ari Antreassian, 3rd generation descendant of Armenian genocide survivors, and Josee Starr, descendant of Native American genocide survivors. The conversation will be moderated by Kate W. English, Executive Director of Educators Institute for Human Rights.

Reservations required. Free to the public.
