Welcome to St. Mary of the Annunciation Spotlight.  This newsletter shines a spotlight on our parishioners and ministries engaged in the works of our Lord and is a vehicle for us to better connect and embrace one another as a community of believers. I thank God for the blessings He has bestowed on St. Mary community and His people. May He continue to show us with His graces.
