About Vemkar

The Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church of America is pleased to announce VEMKAR—a new mobile application for the iPhone and iPod touch.

The app—available free of charge in the App Store and on iTunes—incorporates a wide range of features, including daily scripture readings, photo and video galleries, Armenian spiritual and folk music, a calendar of events, a directory of Diocesan parishes, a prayer request function, and much more.

In Armenian, a “Vemkar” is the specially anointed stone that serves as a movable altar, which can be used for ritual functions in the absence of a permanent sanctuary. As a portable tablet, it allows the sacred power of the Armenian Church to be brought to people in even the most remote places. The Vemkar app places access to the Armenian Church in the palm of your hand.

Download the Vemkar app—and join a little bit of history in the making.
