About Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Pensacola, FL
We welcome you to our Parish Family!
The Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church has served the greater Pensacola area for 100 years. The first Greek immigrants that came to Pensacola were seaman that manned sailing vessels in the mid to late 1800s. Some of the crew settled here as fishermen, or established markets, restaurants, and other small businesses. Gradually the stream of immigrants from Greece increased so much that they needed a place to practice their Orthodox Christian Faith. The first Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Pensacola was built in 1910 at the corner of Wright and Reus Street and was the home to this parish until 1954 when the present church on 1720 West Garden Street was constructed. The Annunciation Parish Fellowship Hall was built in 1950 and the Rev. Fr. Eleftherios Education Building was completed in 1961. Our Annunciation Church was consecrated by the late Archbishop Iakovos in 1973. To this day we have various ministries to serve our parishioners of all ages. Our parish is an active community of 165 families of various ethnic backgrounds and growing!
