Community of Tampa | St. Pete | Florida

Events Committee

In concert with its mission to serve as the bedrock of Armenian Christian religion and culture in southwest Florida, St. Hagop sponsors a range of events held in our church hall and, occasionally, elsewhere. These events have included lectures by scholars of Armenian religion and history, music performances, dinner dances, and viewings of Armenian culture documentaries. Less esoteric events have included talent shows, Armenian specialty cooking contests, and a number of performances by our youth. The events committee reports to the Parish Council, plans an events schedule, and tends to details inclusive of budgeting, catering, and event hosting. Contact any member below for more information.
