The Mission of the Women’s Guild of the Armenian Apostolic Orthodox Church is to live and share the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ through worship, education, witness, service and fellowship as expressed in the distinctive faith-experience of the Armenian people.


All women of the Armenian Church are invited to participate fully in this mission. Local parish guilds, along with the Women’s Guild Central Council, sponsor a variety of national and international projects.

The Women’s Guild of St. Gregory the Enlightener Armenian Church parish is a caring, dedicated and hard-working group of devoted women who plan, organize and implement various social, educational, religious and humanitarian activities for all parishioners and families.


They serve the Church faithfully and joyfully by dedicating their talents, time and efforts to their beloved Church. In addition to their continuous fundraising efforts, the Women’s Guild White House Thrift Shoppe is a constant source of pride and revenue.
