3-Phase Re-Opening Plan


Welcome to our Church Family!  We are an Orthodox Christiacommunity under the Ecumenical Patriarchate, the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America, and the Holy Metropolis of New Jersey.

We are the 6th oldest Greek Orthodox community in  the United States (established in 1901), and we are located in Elkins Park, a charming northern suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.


At Annunciation, our goal is to proclaim the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, sanctify the faithful through worship and the Holy Sacraments, grow the church by inviting and receiving new members, live the Orthodox Christian Faith, and serve humanity through Christ-centered ministries.


We aim to be a loving, caring, and welcoming Christian community where all belong and grow in the Orthodox Christian Faith through worship, witness, fellowship and service to others.


We invite you to explore our website, browse our Calendar of Events, and experience our church family life when you visit us for Worship soon!

Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have regarding our church family or the Orthodox Christian Faith in general.

Blessings and Peace,
