 Historic Timeline  More History


  • 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

    Confession—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

  • 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

  • Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults [RCIA]

    If you, or someone you know is interested in becoming a Catholic through RCIA, please call the parish office to arrange an interview.


  • Religious Education News for Children and Youth

    In order to receive the sacraments, the candidate must be enrolled in Systematic Catechesis for two years prior to reception of the sacrament and enroll in, participate, and complete Sacramental Preparation classes and fulfill requirements



    Familes who catechize at home, please contact the parish office. We want to include your children in CCE activities (such as processions and plays/concerts)
