The Armenian Church at Hye Pointe is the merger of Holy Cross Armenian Apostolic Church of Lawrence, MA and St. Gregory the Illuminator Apostolic Church of Haverhill, MA. Holy Cross and St. Gregory merged in 2002 to create the first merged Armenian Apostolic Church in North America.
The Hye Pointe Community is in the process of building a new church on our property located at 1280 Boston Road in Bradford, MA (Rt. 125). We currently hold services at St. Gregory the Illuminator at 110 Main St., Haverhill, MA until we sell the facility.
Our annual picnic in August draws over 700 attendees for cities in towns in the Merrimack Valley area of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Our Fall Festival, held at St. Gregory the Illuminator, features Armenian foods and pastries as well as full course meals. The Fall Festival is a highlight of the community. Our Men's Club is active with social gatherings, dinners, brunches and the Spring Dance.
Rev Fr. Vart Gyozalyan, our pastor, celebrates the Divine Liturgy on Sunday at 10 am with assistance from dedicated deacons and a vibrant choir. Our Sunday School has grades for ages pre-school through teen-agers and also has an Armenian language class.
