Join us in preserving our Multicultural Community
Language, History, and Culture School:
Annunciation Cultural School teaches our youth and adults that are interested in how to speak Greek, Romanian or Russian Language. We start at an introductory level and students leave with a proficient level of knowledge of these Languages. The students will also learn history and cultural traditions. As a parish family we will find opportunities for them participate in the life of the Church by sharing these traditions. An example, in regards to Greek Culture we will celebrate Greek Independence Day and OXI Day, and the equivalent celebrations:
