Construction Begins on St. Grabed Church and Cultural Center of Las Vegas

H.E. Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian, Prelate, the Executive Council, and St. Garabed Church Pastor and Parish Council are pleased to announce that construction has begun on St. Garabed Church and Cultural Center of Las Vegas (see photos).

After months of diligent planning by the Parish Council and Church Building Committee, all permits for the project were recently granted and construction is now underway, with a projected completion date of May 2013. This undertaking is being realized thanks to the generosity of benefactor Mr. Larry Barnes, who nearly three years ago made a generous donation for this project in memory of his late wife Seda Der Garabedian-Barnes.

The first phase of this project, the construction of the hall, was completed nearly a year ago, and is where Divine Liturgy is celebrated for the time being. In October of 2011, His Holiness Catholicos Aram blessed the foundation and consecrated the dome cross of the Church, and the Prelate consecrated the 16 pillars. At the start of the first phase, the Prelate had also conducted the blessing of the home ceremony at the foundation site.

The Cultural Center adjacent to the Church will feature an Armenian language and history learning center equipped with interactive and modern state of the art learning tools geared towards children and young adults, as well as a modern library equipped with Armenian books, newspapers and magazines both from national and international sources. The Center will house local sister organizations such as Homenetmen and the Armenian Relief Society, among others. There is already a Saturday School administered by the A.R.S. (which begins on September 8), the local Homenetmen Chapter will hold its 15th anniversary banquet at the Center on October 13, and the Parish Ladies Auxiliary is organizing a number of cultural events.

The Parish Council and Church Building Committee will continue to work closely with the Prelate and Executive Council as the construction continues, and hope to have the project completed in spring of next year.

St. Garabed Church and Cultural Center is located at 2054 East Desert Inn Rd.
