You can only see this Orthodox church on a Sunday. We were thrilled to attend liturgy in the only Orthodox house of worship designed by FL Wright, the Greek Orthodox Annunciation church in Wauwatosa Wisconsin. Truly it was a transcendent experience. The building looks like a flying saucer, blue and white in Greek colors. Upon entry it becomes clear that... More

We have often driven past, but recently attended a funeral, and were impressed with the interior design as well as the Liturgy. Intimate setting for worship, and Wright truly outdid himself!

You don't have to be Greek Orthodox, or for that matter even just Christian (personnaly I am questioning my participation in both those groups) to appreciate and love the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church of Milwaukee. The genius of FLW paying homage to Aghia Sophia and Byzantine architecture. It is unlike any other FLW building, but yet it is unmistakeable Wright... More

This church is so different from Frank Lloyd Wright's other buildings and is well worth a visit. I was with a group an had a very nice tour by a volunteer who knew a lot about Wright as well as the history of the church. Of special note, FLW also designed the icons for the iconostasis, but a recent pastor... More

I am not Greek but attended a funeral there and felt welcomed by everyone. I also had attended Easter Mass several years ago and found it just a beautiful.

Obviously the Church is beautiful and a landmark. It is also a beautiful Divine Liturgy (normally at 9:30am). We decided to stay for the 'coffee hour'. It is in the fellowship hall/gym - the curved wood ceiling is more interesting than any gymnasium I've seen. Good coffee though they ran our a bit early. We felt very welcome - Emanuel... More

We had the pleasure of touring the building when it was open for a festival a few years ago, and could not believe how beautiful this building is. If you get the chance to see it, don't pass it up. A marvel of modern design.

Once in awhile this church will be open to the public, or you can always attend their services. It's more interesting when they hold the Greek festival and have a guide tell you about how it was built. Of course it's Frank Lloyd Wright so it was built way over budget and after he was dead, but nothing was skimped... More

I liked to study the icons. The guide was very interesting. He told about the church services and the meanings of the icons and other religious sympols throught the church.
