Year of Saint Joseph

December 8, 2020 to December 8, 2021 

On the 150th Anniversary of the Proclamation of Saint Joseph
as Patron of the Universal Church

Catholics around the world rejoice over the Holy Father’s proclamation of the Holy Year of St. Joseph, which began on December 8, 2020 and ends December 8, 2021.  The entire Archdiocese of Philadelphia is encouraged to spend this year growing closer to St. Joseph by honoring him, imitating his virtues and asking for his intercession.  May this be a year of great grace for all of us as we more deeply entrust ourselves to the care of our spiritual father.

A CALL TO SERVE IN CHURCH MINISTRY

The Liturgy is the work of the people-the music, the Proclaiming of the Word, serving at the altar, ushers to assist, and the distribution of Holy Communion. We need to help fulfill these ministries here at Annunciation! I ask that you pray about how you might be able to give of yourself to enhance the Liturgy here at Annunciation. If you think that you can serve in any of these church ministries, please call Fr. Nick at the rectory office. Thank you!

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”.
