Welcome to the parish website of Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Scranton, PA. Our parish has a long standing presence in the Scranton area. The community was established in 1914, with the church building being eventually consecrated in 1924. Being deeply rooted in our Orthodox Christian and Hellenic traditions, we strive to Glorify our Triune God with an authentic Orthodox Christian witness in North Eastern Pennsylvania. We pray that this website will  provide, not only information and news regarding our parish, but vital information about our timeless Orthodox Christian faith.
