From Our History

In 1977, the Greek Orthodox churches in the Commonwealth of Virginia were part of the Diocese of Charlotte. During the formation of the Southeast Federation of Greek Orthodox Choirs, there was an organizational workshop held at Annunciation in Norfolk. Below is a page from the March 1977 issue of The Annunciation Observer reporting on that meeting. The article was written by Drucie (Arakas) Papafil. Thanks to Ethel Constantine for digging in her "archives".
