Building Notes: Brief Statement by the Architect: 
Saint John Armenian Church was designed as a monument to the timeless qualities of the Armenian religion and to the noteworthy cultural contributions of its people's ancestry. It reflects the achievements of Armenian builders during the millennium preceding the fourteenth century --- during which period their religious reverence, devotion, and ferver prompted them to build five thousand Christian churches in the small corner of the world called Armenia --- churches which may have distinct and remarkable architecture, engineering and artistic features and characteristics.
