PARISH NEWS


PARISH PICNIC

Deacon Kevin Darwent CC will be ordained to the priesthood on Saturday, June 17, 2023. He is one of our own—a parishioner of Annunciation! On Sunday, June 18th, the newly ordained Fr. Kevin will celebrate his first Mass at 11am at our parish, followed by a picnic to celebrate the occasion. Bring your outdoor chairs!

The Knights of Columbus will be barbequing hot dogs, and we are asking parishioners to provide desserts and salads for this event. Thank you to everyone who signed up for a dessert or salad.

We are in need of volunteers to help set up for the picnic on Sunday morning at 8:30am. If you are able to help, sign up using the form below:


SENIORS MASS & LUNCHEON

June 21 is the last Seniors Mass & Luncheon before we break for the summer. Join us at 12pm for Mass, followed by a special roast beef luncheon. There is no cost to attend, so invite a friend! 

Registration closes at 12am on June 15 in order to give enough time to calculate meal numbers. Click here to register.

Our June speaker is Peggy Doucette.

Peggy and her husband Keith run the St. John Paul II Centre for Divine Mercy in Alfred, ON. They and their 9 kids have been active in our parish and throughout the Diocese for many years.


SPIRITUAL BOUQUET FOR FR. JOSHUA

At the end of June, Fr. Joshua is moving to his new parish in Toronto. We have been so blessed by his service and faithfulness this past year! Though we’re sad to see him go, we know the Lord is calling him to great things.

As a parting gift from Annunciation, we are collection affirmations, messages, and prayers from parishioners to form a spiritual bouquet for Fr. Joshua. All entries submitted using the online form will be collected and given to him before his departure.
