Pari Yegak! St. Sarkis Armenian Apostolic Church parish was established in 1932 in Detroit, Michigan. Our current location on Ford Road, Dearborn, MI was dedicated on October 14, 1962 and since then we have satisfied the spiritual and national needs of the Armenians in Southeastern Michigan.

St. Sarkis Armenian Apostolic Church is located on a campus which also includes the Armenian Community Center, a parochial school and the Armenian Senior Citizens Towers.
Today, Armenians can boast of a community that is highly educated, professional and prospering. Armenians are continuing to preserve their rich culture and identity and are loyal citizens. Awareness and remembrance of a proud and fantastic history have bound the Armenian people as their language, culture and tradition still thrives.
In the Gospel of Matthew chapter 12 verse 25 we read “Every kingdom divided against itself is laid waste, and no city or house divided against itself will stand." Today as Armenian Americans we witness similar division in both our homelands and for this reason I would ask you to join me in prayer and say: “O Lord, our God, we thank you for always being with us, and giving us great purpose and hope. Today once again we rely on You, Lord, to fill us with your Spirit of love and unity across our nations. We ask that you help us to set aside our differences and look to the greater cause. Send us your angel of peace to keep us unperturbed day and night so that we shall never fail and glorify Your Holy Name forever and ever. Amen.” - Rev. Fr. Hrant Kevorkian
