Spotlight Newsletter

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.

Access Favorite Homilies

Did you ever wish you could to hear our priests’ homilies again? Good news! Full audio recordings of our weekend homilies can be found on the St. Mary’s parish website.

Teen Catechists Share Their Faith

This summer, three high school students of the parish volunteered their time to pass on the Catholic faith to young children in St. Mary’s summer religious education program.

Growing In Faith Through Service

“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you” (Matt. 28:19-20). This passage from the Gospel of St. Matthew refers to our mission as Catholics: to bear Christ and his good news to the world.

Parenting Through The Sacraments

Our family has been on a journey through the sacraments these past two years with our oldest daughters. During the preparation for our daughters’ sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion, our whole family benefited from the experience.
