Alpha – Registration is Still Open 

The next online Alpha starts May 4. Alpha is a safe place for questions about life and faith. Each night there is a video presentation followed by small group discussion.  It takes place all over Zoom from the comfort of your own home! We can’t go out to get together, but we can come together online.  Call and friend and register for Alpha together.  It will be time well spent. Click here to register!

“Each week during Alpha, I learn a bit more about Christianity and I can feel my faith deepening. Despite the pandemic, I have been lucky to safely attend church a few times over the past weeks, too, which has also been an amazing. I would not have felt confident attending without Alpha.” (Natalie:  Alpha Guest) 

Outdoor Parking Lot Mass  

Annunciation of the Lord held its first ever outdoor parking lot Mass, which by all reports was a great success.  Fifty-one cars were on-hand to experience Mass. Afterwards, Fathers Rob, John and Deacon Marc ministered to an additional 75 car loads of parishioners who received Holy Communion at the drive-by Communion. 

This weekend, here is a challenge. Let’s see if we can get 100 cars in the parking lot! 

A big shout out to all the volunteers who made this first parking lot Mass possible.  If you would like to volunteer, contact Lorie O’Reilly at 

For those who plan to attend the parking lot Mass and are using envelopes, there will be someone on hand to receive your Sunday Offering at the conclusion of Mass.
