"But behind the ecumenical movement is the conviction that the church is God's and God's Church is one."

Virginia Council of Churches

The Virginia Council of Churches is the oldest ecumenical body in the Commonwealth, representing thirty seven governing bodies of eighteen Orthodox, Catholic, and Protestant denominations. As we work together as Christian communions, we build Christian Unity; as we work together with persons of other faiths, we build human community.

The Virginia Council of Churches participated with St. James Armenian Orthodox Church in a Ecumenical and Interfaith Service On the Occasion of the Canonization of the Martyrs of the Armenian Genocide on Saturday, April 18, 2015. "Few people want to talk about Genocide; it is a very depressing subject after all. Still, we cannot indefinitely avoid depressing subjects, particularly when they are part of not only our history but also our present reality."
