About St. John

Originally founded in 1924, the current St. John Armenian Church of San Francisco was consecrated in 1958. With active programs in place to serve our community such as Sunday School, the Armenian Church Youth Organization, Ladies Society, Bible Study groups, and cultural activities, St. John Armenian Church is focused on building a family based on traditional Armenian Values and Christian Virtues.

Join us and become a part of the family.

In the late 1910s, there were only a few Armenians living in San Francisco.

Through the efforts of the late Mihran Serailian arrangements were made for Bishop Papken Guleserian to celebrate Divine Liturgy at Grace Cathedral. In time this was followed by a visit from the Primate of America, Bishop Dirayr Der Hovhannessian, and Very Rev. Fr. Vartan Dz. V. Kasparian of Holy Trinity Church of Fresno.

In 1924 a Parish Council was appointed to lead St. Nersess Shnorhali Parish, as it was known at that time. Sunday services in the 1920's were held in the Trinity Greek Church on 7th Street, as well as in two Episcopal Churches. Having no permanent priest, the parish's spiritual needs were met by Fr. Guldalian of Yettem and Fr. Kasparian of Fresno.
Following the term of Fr. Khatchig Krouzian, Rev. Fr. Bedros Hagopian served at St. John, succeeded by Rev. Zgon Dz. V. Hagopian. In 1941 a Lutheran Church was purchased; Fr. Levont Parounak, the then pastor, designed and built a new altar.
