The purpose of welcoming ministry is twofold:

  1. to create, operate and continually improve upon a ministry that systematically welcomes visitors to the Annunciation in a manner that is hospitable, puts them at ease, helps address their initial questions about the Faith/parish and makes them feel as if we want them to visit again and
  2. to engage in strategic planning and initiatives designed to share the treasures of Orthodox Christianity with the world around us.
