About Annunciation Orthodox Church

Annunciation means the “good news” proclaimed by Archangel Gabriel to the Virgin Mary that she will give birth to Savior of the world, our Lord Jesus Christ.

As Orthodox Christians we carry this message to the world and witness that God is with us.  He came to the world to free us from the bonds of sin and death. And we are thankful to the Lord for this and all the other of His mercies that He shares abundantly with His creation.

We welcome you to join us and participate in our worship to our Heavenly Father in a spirit of repentance and gratitude according to the Orthodox way which Christ’s Church has held for already 2000 years.

Our parish was founded as an outreach for Russian-speaking people and their family members. We have church members from many countries: Russia, Ukraine, Belorussia, Kazakhstan, Estonia, Latvia, etc. along with American-born “cradle” Orthodox and converts who have found a spiritual home in our parish.

Whether you are an Orthodox Christian just arriving in the Jacksonville area and looking for a new parish to call home, or are simply interested in learning more about our Faith–and your own Christian roots–we invite you to explore this website and visit with us.

Thank you and may the Grace and Love of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be with you!
