We have the pleasure to update you with the progress of the 10 new chandeliers from Petros Anagnostou, the owner of Naos, Orthodox Church Supplier, Inc. The chandeliers have arrived and are being assembled and installed by Petros Anagnostou and a certified electrician.
These chandeliers are replacing the current 10 chandelier of Annunciation Cathedral, which were installed in 1977 during Phase II construction. They were reinstalled in 1993 when the dome construction was completed.
We want to share with you a few photos of the assembly and installation. (Please see "Bulletin insert")
FEED THE POOR - ST. PETER AND PAUL
Our church will be providing bag lunches for 100 people in November. Volunteers will be needed to prep the lunches on Saturday, November 11th from 9:30am to 11am in the Cathedral kitchen. Donations can be made to the Annunciation Cathedral to help offset the cost of feeding the poor in November at Sts. Peter and Paul Orthodox church in Detroit. Donations should be labeled “Feed the Poor”. Thank you.
MESSAGE FROM ST. PETER & PAUL ORTHODOX CATHEDRAL
Dear friends and supporters of our ministries at Saints Peter & Paul Orthodox Cathedral and Orthodox Detroit Outreach
As you may know, here in the inner city of SW Detroit, for the past ten years we have been serving our neighbors in need. Our church campus has provided the hub for many of our surrounding parishes. We essentially are providing an opportunity to serve the poor and grow as Orthodox Christian missionaries.
Every week for the past 8 years we have offered a Sunday Neighborhood Meal. Through our many volunteers, these meals offer a cooked sit-down meal, non-perishable food and hygiene items, seasonal clothing, and most importantly, a hospitable setting where our neighbors experience fellowship, faith, and love.
For the past few years, we have been repurposing part of our main church campus with a new fully equipped kitchen and fellowship space. This kitchen project is nearing completion. With your help and prayers, we hope to reopen again for Sunday Neighborhood Meals and fellowship very soon.
We ask that you would please consider offering a donation towards this end.
You can access our Go Fund Me page here:
We thank you in advance for your help. Please continue to pray for all who
are called into this noble work, and for all whom we serve.
Saints Peter & Paul Orthodox Cathedral
ANNUNCIATION CATHEDRAL CHOIR
Your choir has begun another year in song this Sunday and we invite you to join us in the choir loft – young and old are welcome. We accommodate all levels of musicality, and you do not have to read Greek to sing. We practice once or twice per month, and sing with our whole hearts. If you have always wanted to try, come sing with us! We encourage you to offer your talents to your church.
“Therefore the redeemed of the Lord shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away. Isaiah 51:11
Any questions can be directed to your nearest choir member or Kim Lianos at kim.lianos04@. We encourage you to join us!
We have the honor and pleasure to announce that the 7 Iconographies that are going to be placed at the naïve in the arches above the double entrance door, the 2 single doors, the 3 windows and on top of the storage cabinet door are in progress by our Cathedral’s Iconographer, Laurence Manos.
Our Iconographer sent us 3 photos of his progressive work so that we may also see the iconographic beauty that will beautify our most beloved Annunciation Cathedral here in the heart of Detroit. May God bless him for his God-pleasing work and we hope to see more updates and see the 7 Icons placed at the Annunciation Cathedral according his schedule by the end of October, 2023.
We are all so excited to see much more of his talented work of faith in colors.

As summer comes to an end and our children are heading back into the classroom, we want to make sure our college kids know they are still part of the Annunciation family. For many years, the Philoptochos of Annunciation Cathedral has had an outreach program for our college kids. Twice a year, we send them care packages to let them know their church family is thinking about them and praying for a successful, healthy year for them. If you are a member in good standing, and have a college kid in your family, please submit their name, mailing address, school they are attending, and year of study to Kim Lianos or another Philoptochos member by September 30. If you would like to help with this effort, or if you would like to donate an item for distribution to the group, please let Kim Lianos know. Kim.firstname.lastname@example.org or text/call 313.850.6246. All help is welcome!
