|About||St. Vartan's Armenian Catholic Church of Greater Detroit Welcomes you!!|
St. Vartan Armenian Catholic Parish of Greater Detroit was instituted in 1948 by His Eminency Cardinal Krikor-Bedros XV Agagian, Catholicos-Patriarch of the House of Cilicia for Armenian Catholics, upon the invitation of His Eminency Edward Cardinal Mooney, Archbishop of Detroit. A native Armenian Catholic Priest and a survivor of the Armenian Genocide 1915, Msgr. Joseph Kalajian, 1907-1999, a talented musician, composer and author, came to the United States from Beirut, Lebanon in May, 1946, to minister the Armenian Catholic faithful as assistant Pastor to Msgr. Stephan Stephanian at St. Mark's Armenian Catholic Parish, in Philadelphia. In December, 1947, he was directed to come to Detroit to become the first pastor and founder the new Parish in 1948.
Our Pastor is Father Mikael Bassale.
