Parish Mission Statement

"Nourished by the Word and Eucharist, under the spiritual guidance of our pastor, we the members of Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish, empowered by the Holy Spirit, strive to create a vital, welcoming Catholic faith community that embraces each person. Acknowledging our blessings and supporting one another, we share our faith, time, and talent, to joyfully proclaim the Gospel and humbly serve the needs of God's people and work to be the presence of Christ in an ever-changing world."

Our Sunday School students (and their instructor) are true gems!
