Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church

Brockton, MA

 

Beloved brothers and sisters in Christ,

Christ is in our midst!

Welcome to the website of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church of Brockton, MA. The Annunciation is within the Metropolis of Boston, which is part of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America – one of the daughter Churches of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople. The Church of the Annunciation is the only Eastern Orthodox Church in Brockton and its surrounding communities.

At the Annunciation, we conduct the full cycle of Sunday services, commencing with Orthros (Matins) and the Divine Liturgy on Sunday mornings. Throughout the liturgical year, we also celebrate the feasts of our Lord and the Theotokos (Mother of God), as well as the feasts of all major saints of the Church. From fall through spring, Small Vespers are also celebrated on most Wednesdays nights, with adult religious education sessions following the service.

We welcome all to worship with us, whether you are visiting the area or live locally. May God bless you!

Fr. Michael's December 2019/January 2020 Message

My Beloved in Christ,

May the Grace, mercy and peace of Jesus Christ who was born in a cave and laid in a manger for our salvation be with you all.

The Christmas Star, in its entire beauty, will again shine on all of us, His faithful people on this blessed and Holy Day of Christmas. It will shine upon the earth and guide all of us to our Savior’s love. It will shine in our sanctuary, where the Son of Righteousness light will come upon all Christians in worship; it will sparkle from the top of our decorated Christmas trees and will shine its light upon our homes and upon the beautifully decorated presents placed under our trees.

Its rays will warm the hearts of the faithful believers, embracing them with heaven's proclamation that "Unto us a Savior is born today" and the angels’ proclamation: "Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace, good will among men," (Luke 2:14). It is the hymn by which the multitude of heavenly hosts greeted the Christ Child.

The shepherds, who were watching over their flock on that chilly night, came to worship Him with humility and simplicity in their hearts. The Magi followed and for centuries humanity has been drawn near to Him, searching for truth and salvation.

Many philosophies, ideals, cynics and humanistic teachings, throughout the centuries, have tried to confuse and destroy man's sense of religious faith. These attempts have failed and have brought many more to the truth of God and His Holy Church. The majority of the true and faithful believers become stronger in their walk in Christ.

The eyes of our soul are fixed on that Holy Star and its rays sustain us and gives us the hope and expectation of peace and good will to all humanity. This is the Divine and human miracle that we celebrate in this Holy Season. Let your eyes gaze inwardly into your hearts and souls to see where Christ is born and where faith, hope and love lives. Allow your hearts to jump with joy at the expectation of a new rebirth of the spirit and life. Let His Light create a different kind of person in us, a person with a new positive outlook on life.

It is this type of Christmas Holiday I hope you will celebrate this year, with Christ in the center of your lives. With an enthusiastic spirit of giving, the kind that is expressed and exemplified with real love and affection for those who suffer or are in any way deprived of the joy of Christmas.

Presvytera Cyndy and I thank God for each and every one of you and we send our love and holiday greetings to you all.

With Blessings and Good Wishes for a Blessed Christmas and a Healthy and Spiritual New Year.

With love in the Incarnate Lord,
Father Michael
