St. Mary began from humble origins, taking care of the spiritual needs of the Newark Armenian Community following the bleak years after WW1.



St. Mary Armenian Church is located in Livingston New Jersey, and is part of the Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America, which itself is under the jurisdiction of the See of Holy Etchmiadzin and the Catholicos of all Armenians, His Holiness, KAREKIN II, the Supreme Patriarch.

The parish is comprised of approximately 200 families living in Northern New Jersey who travel from Essex, Morris, Sussex, Union and Somerset Counties on a regular and weekly basis to worship and participate in the various social, cultural and educational ministries available.

She is now the 13th largest parish of the Eastern Diocese and is flourishing with a variety of activities for all ages.

Her work and ministry is centered in and focused on the continued celebration of the Divine Liturgy on a weekly basis. The Divine Liturgy, as the source and goal of our Christian experience, is the High Point for both our life and the life of the Church as we gather around the Lord’s Table as the Body of Christ offering Glory. Praise and Thanksgiving to the True God and Saviour, Jesus Christ who is glorified with His Father and Holy Spirit, now and always and forever, Amen.
