Welcome to the Church of the Annunciation Website
"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God."
It is impossible to imagine an Orthodox church in which candles are not lit.” (Blessed Simeon of Thessalonica, 15th Century)
One of the first things most people do upon entering an Orthodox Church is to light their candle and offer prayers for one’s personal needs or that of a family member or friend, we also light candles to pray for protection and safety so that we may live this life without fear. If you would like to light a candle please click the image above and follow all instructions. We look forward to praying with you and your family.
Annunciation History Project
In order to better understand our community in the spirit of the Thriving Congregations Initiative, a project to collect, compile, and archive the various aspects of our parish history has been started. This includes our #ThrowbackThursday initiative on social media, the interactive timeline, and the scanning of the parish photo collection. If you are interested in getting involved, please reach out to Nicholas Lambros. More information can be found here: Our History.
