This Sunday, June 17th our parish will conduct a special Assembly meeting to discuss and vote on a proposal to begin fundraising for a new mosaic icon in the Altar apse and to purchase new kitchen equipment. This will not be a long drawn out meeting: just one topic for discussion and a vote. Please join us!
Everyone is invited to a Festival Meeting on Tuesday, June 19th at 6:00pm to review this year's Festival and discuss recommendations for next year's Festival. Please join us and all together we can continue to advance our wonderful annual project.
Please, please contribute to the history and joy of the parish by submitting pictures or video clips you have taken of the 2018 Festival! Your photos can become a critical part of our parish's historical record and they will bring much joy to everyone. Please email or drop off copies of your photos to the Church Office ASAP. Not only will we all appreciate them here and now, but future generations of the Annunciation Church family will treasure them also!!!!
We are so very happy to announce that our parish now has an Instagram account: look us up at OrthodoxChurchLR. This gives our parish another valuable communication vehicle by which to highlight, introduce and encourage the Orthodox Christian faith in the Little Rock area. Spread the word and Follow us!
Our 34th annual Festival was a great success on many levels and we were able to advance the cause of helping others in the name of the Lord and advance with work of the Lord. Again this year, our parish collected an admittance fee of $3 or three canned food items for the Arkansas Food Bank. It is therefore with great joy that our parish received the news from the Food Bank that the 2018 Festival collected 6,518 pounds (3.259 tons) of food which translates to 5,431 meals for hungry Arkansans!!! It is such a profound blessing for us to realize that our Annunciation Church family's talents so successfully helped our neighbors in the name of Jesus Christ. This distinct honor and joy belongs to every single person who worked so hard at this year's Festival!
