Mission Statement

We, the people of the Annunciation BVM Parish, recognize our call to grow as “A Catholic Life Community”.  We are in communion with our Holy Father, Shepherd of the Universal Church, and our Archbishop, Shepherd of the Church in Philadelphia.  Accepting the privilege and the challenge of this call, we commit ourselves to be:

A community that worships God in Spirit and truth through the celebration of the Eucharist and the other Sacraments;

A community that proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ by inviting all people to join our parish;

A community that teaches the message of Christ through our elementary school, our CCD classes, our adult education sessions, and our Liturgy;

A community that serves and heals all our parishioners, especially the poor and needy by generous acts of charity, and by using our time, talent and treasure, work together for goodwill,  justice and peace for all.

We realize that this statement is merely the end of the beginning.  We pray for God’s guidance, and through the intercession of Mary, gain the strength to continue to respond to the needs of our “Catholic Life Community”.
