The Cathedral of St Elias and St Gregory the Illuminator (Armenian: Սուրբ Եղիա – Սուրբ Գրիգոր Լուսաւորիչ եկեղեցի) is a cathedral of the Armenian Catholic Church in Debbas Square in downtown Beirut, Lebanon. Construction was funded in 1928 by Pope Pius XI. It is the cathedra of the Armenian Catholic Patriarchate of Cilicia.
