Live Services

As part of our outreach ministry, we are blessed to broadcast our services via Facebook Live.  All services are broadcast live during their scheduled time and are available for playback after the service is over.  Especially during these trying times, we invite you to join us digitally.

Live Services are available on our Annunciation Sacramento Facebook Page via Facebook Live on your smart phone or tablet, or on your smart TV using the Facebook Watch app.

“I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” – John 8:12

Upon entering an Orthodox church, it is customary to light candles and offer prayers for one’s personal needs or that of a family member or friend. Candles are lit before icons as a sign of one’s faith and hope in God’s help that is always sent to all who turn to Him and His Saints with faith and prayers. By lighting a candle and offering a prayer, one enters into closer contact with the Church and her ministry to the faithful, invisibly warming the soul by the visible light of the candle.

Since we may not be physically able to enter our church for services given the restrictions placed upon us by the pandemic, we would still like to offer you the joy of being able to light a candle, and say a prayer, as you join us digitally for our Divine Liturgies, Parish Feastday, and other Lenten services.

Father James, Father Timothy, or Yianni will light a candle on your behalf before the Divine Liturgy or other service begins.

Please see the calendar for upcoming services or visit This Week at Annunciation.
During Great Lent, we will have Great Compline on Mondays at 6:00 pm, Divine Liturgy of the Pre-Sanctified Gifts on Wednesday at 6:00 pm, and Salutations to the Theotokos on Fridays at 7:00 pm.
