pastor's message

Thank you for visiting the St. James Armenian Church website! We welcome you to our website and thank you for taking the time and effort to find us. 

We have updated our website which is one of the ways that we can let our parishioners and our friends know more about the life of St. James in Greater Richmond area and about the Armenian Church. 

We hope this website will help you to find information regarding our church, our mission, ministries, activities and organizations of St. James. As an Armenian Church, we seek to teach the Word of God and the Orthodox faith, and together worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through the Divine Liturgy and services of the Armenian Orthodox Church. We also seek to strengthen and ensure the continuation of our cherished Armenian language and rich culture in the Greater Richmond area.

Our St. James family is warm and friendly. We welcome you to worship with us during Divine Liturgy on Sunday mornings and to attend any one of our many programs, events, and social gatherings.

Please feel free to contact the St. James office at any time if you would like more information about our church. 

With blessings,

Rev. Fr. Samuel Rith-Najarian, Pastor
