"Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest."
(Mt. 11:28)

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 behalf of the Annunciation Parish Council, the

Philoptochos and the ministries of our Parish we

wish you a Blessed and Merry Christmas!
