Solidarity, Generosity, Respect
A symbol of generosity and solidarity, for a place of worship, keeping it operational and open to the community it serves.
The Association of Friends of the Hellenic Church of Bucharest was established to support the day-to-day functioning as well as the long-term preservation of the Greek Orthodox Church of the Annunciation, a beautiful, exquisite and unique Greek Orthodox Church in Bucharest, Romania, that combines harmoniously two traditions: externally, the Ionian temple; internally, the byzantine basilica.
FHC’s efforts are welcomed by the Greek Embassy in Romania, as well as the clergy that is holding the liturgy for the Church of the Annunciation:

Perseverance, Faith, Benefaction
By the end of the 19th century, the Greek Diaspora in Romania was a thriving community.
This group was determined to create its own place of worship, highlighting its inheritance: the Hellenistic tradition, a cornerstone of modern Europe; the Orthodox spirit, pillar of faith and spiritual guidance. Many problems had to be solved, many obstacles to overcome.
Symbol of Greece, Treasure of Bucharest
The Church of the Annunciation is important for its beauty, architecture and historical significance and is a listed monument of the Romanian capital. It is the pride of the Greek community in Bucharest, the friends of Greece and the Orthodox faith.
Uniting the Diaspora
The Church of the Annunciation is the one heart of the Greek Orthodox Christian faith in Bucharest. Its preservation, continued functioning and promotion of the values it embodies is essential to the local Greek community.
