In 2019 the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church teamed up with the St. Irene Orthodox Mission & Orphanage which is located in Njabini, Kenya. Through this relationship, our parish created the Friends of St. Irene Orthodox Mission & Orphanage. The “Friends” program was established by our parish to create awareness for the needs of the Orphanage. The daily needs at the orphanage are great since the staff has to minister to over 180 orphans and/or vulnerable children.
If you would like to become a Friend of the St. Irene Orthodox Mission & Orphanage or have any other questions, please contact Fr. John Sakellariou. We are currently raising funds to help support the Orphanage with access to safe drinking water. 100% of all donations will be given directly to the Orphanage.
Checks can be made out to AGOC (Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church) with Friends of St. Irene Orthodox Mission & Orphanage specified in the memo line. Online donations can also be submitted through our Parish’s PayPal account. Please add Friends of St. Irene Orthodox Mission & Orphanage by clicking on “Add special instructions to the seller”.
