"Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden,
Rev Fr. Jon Magoulias, Parish Priest
Welcome to the Annunciation Website, a ministry of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Modesto, California. On behalf of the faithful of our parish, we are extremely blessed that you are visiting our website.
|The Church is you, your family, and your relatives. The Church is each of us. The Church is people joined together in a common, spiritual, and religious bond. The bond is Jesus Christ; thus, the Church is the body of Christ! Our Church is the body of believing Orthodox Christians throughout the world; and at the same time, it is the local assembly of believing Orthodox Christians.
The Church of the Annunciation has over 350 stewardship families and is a multi-ethnic parish. More and more people throughout the world are becoming aware of our precious Orthodox Christian Faith. As they learn of the unchanging truths of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, they realize the stability and the continuity preserved since the New Testament era through today. We invite you to learn more about our Church and our parish family by joining us for worship and fellowship.
On the Main Menu, you will find a section titled "CHURCH GUIDELINES DURING COVID-19." Please read carefully before attending services at the Church. Thank you!
Traditions are important! This year also marks the 55th anniversary of our Greek Food Festival. We are continuing with plans to hold the Festival once again, but with a twist. This year’s Festival will be drive-thru/take-out only. We will be pre-selling tickets online and in the church office for both meals and baklava. We will be offering baklava for sale as the only pastry choice. While this represents a dramatic shift in how we usually operate the Festival, it ensures that we will be following all local and state guidelines regarding COVID-19.
Please read the flyer below for more information. We hope to see you once again!
|There will be more information to follow on how to pick up your meals. If you purchase your tickets prior to the website information update, we will email you instructions. Please include the email you would like us to use in the Special Instructions message section. Thank you!|
