VEMKAR is the electronic media platform of the Diocesan Ministries department of the Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America.

Through its website, downloadable phone app, and weekly e-blast, VEMKAR offers inspirational and informational resources to pastors, deacons, Sunday and Armenian school staff, youth and lay leaders in our local Diocesan parishes, to enrich young and old alike in their faith, worship, and learning experiences.

Named after the consecrated stone tablet that serves as the altar in the absence of a permanent sanctuary, VEMKAR places access to the Armenian Church in the palm of your hand.
