About our Church
"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." - Romans 15:7
With the consecration of our Church on September 8, 1968 by His Eminence Archbishop Iakovos, The Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church reached another milestone in its remarkable history. The Labor of Love was borne by many members who served on sundry committees to help expedite the occasion in a manner, which became "the" example for other Greek Orthodox Communities to follow and emulate.
"We must take the torch of Faith and Tradition handed to us by our forebearers and perpetuate it. We must equal their sacrifice and share their toil and labor. We must hold fast to our rich Orthodox heritage and pass it on from one generation to anothoer to eternity." - Rev. Fr. George Nicozisin.
Through this web site, we are pleased to be able to introduce you to that same worship and fellowship as it is expressed in the life of our Parish. If you are a new member of our parish, or are considering membership, these web pages will acquaint you with what our parish offers to those who give it support and sustenance; to those who already belong to the church, we hope they will provide you with the assurance that your sacrificial offerings are received with profound respect, and are utilized to maximum effectiveness. They will, in any case, enable you to make the informed decisions that are necessary for a meaningful relationship with your church.
