Wednesday, July 6th, 6:30 – 9:30 pm  

Calling all parishioners, ages 12 – 112!  You are invited to help prepare décor items to be used to transform the hall and common areas to a desert-like setting for our VBS camp.  You don’t need to be creative or artistic, handy or strong.  A love of God, a desire to share His grace and perhaps some older attire (paint clothes) is all you need.  We will provide materials, instructions, snacks and fun!  

Call for Ushers  

Would you like to volunteer at the parish but don’t know where to begin.  How about considering serving as an Usher at one of the weekend Masses.  It is a great way to meet fellow parishioners and to be a welcoming presence for people who may be attending Annunciation of the Lord for the first time.  In addition to welcoming people, you will also assist in taking up collection.  The need for ushers is greatest at the 10:00 a.m. and Noon Masses.  For more information, contact Lorie at
