Entrance to the Greek Orthodox Church
The doors of the Annunciation as a gateway to Jesus Christ are open to all. Men and women who sincerely desire to become a part of the Annunciation Church family and establish a dynamic relationship with the Lord our God according to the dogma, principles and traditions of the Orthodox Church may do so through a process of preparation and instruction initiated by contacting the parish priest. The “Orthodox Christian Catechism” program at the Annunciation begins with a series of appointments with the priest. After a period of prayer, preparation and instruction, one may ask to enter into the body of the Orthodox Church at the Annunciation in Little Rock.
A Christian individual who can prove that they have baptized with water in the name of the Holy Trinity desiring to enter into the Orthodox Church and who has participated in the Catechism program is formally received into the Church through the service of Chrismation. An individual who is not a baptized Christian is received into the Church through Baptism. All individuals entering the Orthodox Church at the Annunciation whether through Chrismation or Baptism, require an Orthodox Christian sponsor. The sponsor must be an Orthodox Christian and, if married, be married in the Orthodox Church. If the sponsor has been divorced, they must have an Ecclesiastical Divorce. Please contact Fr. Nicholas for more information.
