About Saint Anna Greek Orthodox Church

Who We Are

Our church family has as its purpose the calling to share the new life in Jesus Christ among the faithful and through them to the wider community. While this parish was established in Roseville in 1998 and has been in its present location since 2007, Orthodox Christianity has spanned the globe since A.D. 33.

Saint Anna Church in Roseville was originally founded by a small group of Greek Americans, but today the parish aptly reflects the American experience and comprises approximately 200 families representing at least 12 different nationalities, all witnessing to the Good News of Jesus Christ, striving to reflect His love, and living according to the ancient Christian principles and disciplines of the Orthodox Christian Church.

The Saint Anna Church family is a vibrant community of faithful Christians of varied backgrounds who are committed to serving God and loving our neighbors by adhering to Orthodox Christian principles that are concurrently Scriptural, Traditional, Apostolic and Eucharistic.

The parish is committed to serving the Lord, manifesting the light of Christ to the world and meeting the needs of God’s people through His Good News. The doors of the Saint Anna are open to anyone who wants a deep relationship with God and would like to be part of Christ’s plan to help others in His name and love.
“Come and See!"
