“For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you; that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and that when He had given thanks (Greek: eucharesteas), He broke it and said, Take eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me. In the same manner He also took the cup after supper saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it in remembrance of Me.'” I Cor. 11:23-25
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ:
With these words from Saint Paul, we greet you on this the Evangelismos (Annunciation) web page and invite you to participate in the Living Presence and Reality of our Lord Jesus Christ by sharing the Holy Eucharist.
May this web page serve as an entry and introduction to the faith that has been teaching the truth since 33 AD. The Annunciation has been teaching and sharing the Faith since 1892 in New York City. With its beautiful edifice, stained glass windows, iconography and the dedicated faithful, the Faith has been perpetuated. Its dedicated local assembly of Orthodox Christians as an Ekklesia (Church) who is a family of Jesus Christ. In this era of technology many people are becoming aware of the Unchanging Faith of the “One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.” By means of this web site, we are pleased to introduce you to that Faith and worship expressed in the life of the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation of the Theotokos.
As you surf through these web pages about the life and activities of the Church, you will find a group of activities from philanthropy to education. In all that we do, we keep our Lord God at the center and core of all that we do. The Ministries (Diakonias) whether it be one elected to serve on the Parish Council; or joins Ladies Philoptochos; or assist in any of the educational programs; or assists in the Altar; or chants; or does spiritual outreach, are done to glorify God and not man. Diakonia (Ministry) is done to “feed His flock and to help in bringing the Faithful to the Mystical Supper — Holy Communion.
May our Lord bless the use of this web site to His Glory! Amen!
Fr. James G. Moskovites
