Celebrating the Great Feast of Holy Theophany

Dear Faithful of Annunciation,
 
Christ is Born! Glorify Him!

Due to inclement weather, and because they are being celebrated on a weekday this year (meaning, significantly less attendees), we will celebrate the services surrounding the Great Feast of Holy Theophany (January 5th, 6th, and 7th) from inside our church building.  If you are able, healthy, and comfortable, we invite you to pray and celebrate with us these services.  Masks and social distancing protocols will, of course, be in place. 
As always, our services will continue to be broadcast via our live-stream.
 
With love in Christ,
 
Fr. James Retelas 
Presiding Priest
