About: Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral
The Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral represents a branch of the Eastern Orthodox faith, which is a continuation of the First Century Church. The Annunciation Cathedral belongs to the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Pittsburgh, which is under the authority of Metropolitan Savas, Presiding Hierarch of the Metropolis of Pittsburgh.
The parish was chartered by the State of Ohio in 1910. There were about 30 Greek families in Columbus at the time and they wanted to form a parish even though they did not yet have a church building or priest. Their own church would not become a reality until March 27, 1922, when the first service was held on the Sunday of Annunciation. Today, Annunciation has about 800 families on the church mailing list and an annual budget of over one million dollars.
