  • Daily Prayer for Hurricane Season

     

    Dear God, Our Father, creator of the universe and Lord over all creation.
    We humbly stand before you as your children and ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes which may threaten us.
    Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent trust and hope in your love and mercy. You alone have the power to command the sea, the wind and the rain.
    You alone bring peace, calm and safety. Father, we thank you in advance, for you are our only refuge. We ask this through Christ, Your Son, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, forever and ever.   AMEN
    Mother Mary, Star of the Sea, pray for us

    Thank You to the 102 families...

    We are at 69% of our target. In order to make our goal of $44,200 we still need more help. Please consider donating or pledging to help fill in the gap by using the DSF envelopes found in the pews or simply drop a check in the collection with DSF in the memo. In the Year of Mercy may our almsgiving bring us blessings of joy and peace and increase our trust in Him. Thank you for your prayerful consideration of the Diocesan Services Fund.

    Sacraments

    • Christ instituted the sacraments of the new law

      The seven sacraments touch all the stages and all the important moments of Christian life: they give birth and increase, healing and mission to the Christian's life of faith. There is thus a certain resemblance between the stages of natural life and the stages of the spiritual life.

      Sacraments are "powers that comes forth" from the Body of Christ, which is ever–living and life–giving. They are actions of the Holy Spirit at work in his Body, the Church. They are “the masterworks of God” in the new and everlasting covenant.
      Catechism of The Catholic Church #1116

    • Penance

      At Annunciation, Confession is heard 15 minutes before every Mass or by appointment

      Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God's mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labors for their conversion.
      Catechism of The Catholic Church #1422
    • Baptism

      Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua) and the door which gives access to the other sacraments

      Catechism of The Catholic Church #1213

    • Matrimony

      The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament

    • Catholic Christian Education [CCE]

      Religious education for Annunciation Parish is offered as a means of supporting and assisting parents in the privilege and responsibility of passing on our Catholic faith to our children.

      Prior to receiving the Sacraments of: Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation, children must be registered and participate in Systematic Catechesis for two years. This means that students must be enrolled in CCE/RE at the parish (or an equivalent and USCCB approved home or Catholic School program) for the one year prior to receiving the Sacrament and during the preparation year
