The Armenian Church of Southwest Florida (ACSWFL) in Naples, Florida, had its Armenian Christmas service on Sunday, January 8, 2017. Guest celebrant The Very Rev. Daniel Findikyan, Director of the Zohrab Information Center at the Diocese of the Armenian Church in New York City, presided.

In addition to the Christmas Service, a Blessing of the Water Service was also conducted with Daniel Nersesian serving as the Godfather of the Cross. Nersesian is a student at The University of Dayton in Ohio, and the son of Lucine and John Nersesian of Chicago, Illinois.

A catered buffet supper with all the trimmings followed in the Church Hall, with about 75 parish members attending, making Armenian Christmas 2017 a joyous one for all.

    Where is the Armenian Church in Naples Florida. I never see an address. I live in Ft. Myers Beach.


  2. Dear Kathryn, Services are held at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 3901 Davis Blvd., Naples, Florida. Since Naples is a mission parish, there is no Armenian Church sanctuary at this time. The name and address for Armenian Church services in Naples is published in nearly every single post regarding the Naples community. Most recently, the Armenian Christmas information post lists St. Pauls, see here: As does the announcement of the calendar of Services, see here: Thanks for reading
