From Our Pastor...

Posted on June 26, 2024 in: Pastor

Dear Parishioners:

Each of us has received grace-gifts from God. And “as each has received a gift,” we are to “use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (1 Peter 4:10). We are given these gifts for the “progress and joy” of one another’s faith (Philippians 1:25).

Ministry is at the heart of our community.  We all minister to each other on many different levels.  We here at Annunziata parish are always interested in anyone who would like to minister to the people of God. 

Our parish stands squarely at the intersection of faith and life; it rests on a foundation of welcome and hospitality whose walls define a sanctuary for the growth of intimacy with God and a deepening of relationships with others.  Our parish community is richly textured by the diversity of peoples and generations; it is illumined by the Light of Christ whose doors and windows are always open to the movement of Spirit in the world.
