ST. MARY ARMENIAN APOSTOLIC CHURCH

St. Mary Armenian Apostolic Church defines its work as religious and

spiritual, national and social. Years of communism; the tremendous

earthquake in 1988 that killed some 55,000 and left cities in ruins; the

now fledgling independence for Armenia; and recent war in Azerbaijan have

created many needs abroad and among immigrants establishing a new life

here. The church shoulders a great responsibility in meeting them. The

worship is Gregorian, with the traditional role of the priest as

intercessor, the deacon offering the litany and the choir and

congregation chanting responsively. Services are in Armenian, with the

service book in Armenian with English transliterations. Moushegh Tashjian

gives the sermon in both Armenian and English. Services are on Sunday

with matins at 10 a.m., and the divine liturgy at 10:30 a.m. Sunday

school is at 10:30 a.m. for children 4 and older. Tashjian is senior

pastor. The church is at 148 E. 22nd St., Costa Mesa. For more
