Please note that the Church Office will be closed the week of July 10th-14th as our Office Administrator, Karla Fisher, will be on vacation. The Office will reopen on Monday, July 17th. In addition, Father Nicholas will also begin his vacation later in the week and will not be back until July 23rd.
We are pleased to note that on Sunday, July 16th, Fr. Nick Pathenos from Michigan will return to the Annunciation to celebrate the Divine Liturgy while Fr. Nicholas is away on vacation. We are so very blessed to have Fr. Pathenos make the trip down to Little Rock to lead us in worshipping the Lord!
On Thursday, July 27th, the OPA group will meet at the Church at 10:45am. We will then carpool to Mama's Gyros Grill (3309 E. Kiehl Avenue, Sherwood, AR 72120) and enjoy lunch together. Please RSVP to Dena Parker.
Our next Parish Assembly will take place on Sunday, August 20th. Please make every effort to attend. Let us work together to the glory of God at the Annunciation!
This year the Metropolis of Detroit Clergy Laity Conference will take place in Buffalo, New York, Wednesday, September 27th until Saturday, September 30th at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. We need some parishioners to serve as delegates from the Annunciation. If you can serve and or would like some more information, please see a Parish Council member. Parish Delegates will be nominated and elected at our August Parish Assembly.
For the last few years we have maintained the library of Church pictures at the Phanfare website. Recently Phanfare has been absorbed by SmugMug and so our photo library has moved to an all new location. With the help of our very own Jerry Horani, the web address has changed, but it is still just as easy and simple for our Church family to access the pictures of the parish. Visit our website, OrthodoxChurch.com, and click on the link at the top of the page, or:
This also serves as a reminder that if you have pictures from life at the parish to share and keep in our parish history, please send us your pictures at the Annunciation via e-mail to the Church Office or provide us with a disc or USB drive that we can copy and return back to you. We will then upload the photos to the site for everyone here and now, as well as future generations, to enjoy.
We need Epistle Readers! And the summer season means that we also need parishioners to go the extra mile and host an upcoming Fellowship Hour (Sunday, July 23rd is available). The two sign-up sheets are on our bulletin board - please consider registering for a given Sunday!
