Saints Joachim & Anne Armenian Apostolic Church of Palos Heights

English Armenian


The Armenian Church in Palos Heights, Illinois is likely the only Armenian Church in the world with the eccelesiastical name of Saints Joachim & Anne. Godfather of the church, Mourod Fundukian, wished the church be named after his parents, Hovagim and Armav Fundukian. The Primate of the Diocese, in discussion with Mr. Fundukian and the 1958 Parish Council, consecrated the parish as Soorp Joachim (Hovagim) & Anna after the Virgin Mary's parents.
