The Pillars of the Prelacy:
Stewards of the Armenian Church
The Pillars of the Prelacy is an annual-giving program that benefits the Prelacy’s mission of service to our community as a whole as well as on a local parish level.
Since the beginning of the Pillars program in 2003, nearly one million dollars has been raised. These funds have benefited our religious and Armenian education programs; the continuing education of our clergy; the recruiting of new clergy candidates, and the many other Prelacy programs such as the Datev Institute for teens, Siamanto Academy for high school students; Linked In Retreats for young adults; the Quarterly Forum Series for young professionals and the on-line course in Modern Western Armenian for everyone.
For centuries the Armenian Church has carried out its primary religious ministry, as well as its role as the guardian and perpetuator of Armenian culture, traditions, and values. The money raised by the Pillars sustains and expands the services and programs provided by the Prelacy.
Pillars donate a minimum of $1,000 per year. Many donate $2,500 and $5,000 per year, and some up to $10,000. The level of support is up to you.
