St. Gregory Armenian Apostolic Church has been serving the Armenian Community in British Columbia since 1986. Located in Richmond, we are an integral part of the community but our reach and support extends to all Armenian-Canadians throughout the Greater Vancouver Regional District.
Our church is the pillar of our national identity and the core of our community, providing spiritual guidance to its members, and a place to continue to learn, maintain and honour the language, music and traditions of an ancient peoples.
In 2013, the Vancouver Armenian community recognized the need and growing urgency to help Syrian-Armenians escaping the war and devastation unfolding in their towns and cities. Over the past two years, we have worked closely with the Government of Canada to secure our application as a Sponsorship Agreement Holder (SAH). Under the Citizenship & Immigration Canada rules, this agreement allows us to sponsor Syrian families caught in a war torn area.
What started out as an idea, a dream, a hope and a small endeavour amongst a passionate and determined group of people has turned into one of the largest private sponsoring groups in British Columbia.
