  • Wow, I was baptized in this church September 1960 by Rev. Kegham Zakarian
  • Wonderful place. You have to attend the ceremony, at 3 pm, to visit the church, but that worth it. The monks sings lovely songs 'a capela'
  • Open 9:00 to 9:40 and 15:00 to 15:40 except on some Armenian feast days. Sung by the Seminarians coming from Armeny. Don't miss Saint James martyrdom place on the left-hand second chapel inside.
