Parish Mission Narrative

Our Blessed Mother responded to God’s call with a clear and unhesitating yes. Let it be done to me according to Your will (Luke 1:38). We, the people of St. Mary of the Annunciation, are called by God, as His humble servants, to respond with our own yes. Like Mary, we do not fully understand what God’s call means, but we know that through our yes, we give witness to the joy of the Gospel, as with complete trust, we follow wherever God may lead us.

We are one body in Christ with many diverse parts, called to discern our personal gifts and respond with absolute commitment to God’s call to holiness in our lives. As one family with many varied gifts and callings, we seek to grow ever deeper in our own relationship with Christ. Recognizing that we have been richly blessed, we are called to return those gifts to the Lord by serving his people, bringing the light of Christ to the world beyond our parish campus, particularly to those in greatest need. To realize this calling, we must allow our shared faith, the common thread that binds the patchwork of diversity among our parish family, to unite us and inspire us to truly live as men and women for others.

If the long and storied history of our parish holds any lesson for us today, it is that when we heed the words of the Angel Gabriel that nothing is impossible with God, we too can accomplish things that once seemed impossible. Building on this heritage and upon the firm foundation of our vibrant ministries, our beautiful and prayerful liturgies, and our mission and outreach opportunities, we will work to engage all generations and reach out to the lost and those who have left the Lord’s table, adapting the ways we communicate and meeting people where they are on their faith journeys. Inspired by our patron, Mary of the Annunciation, we will strive at all times and in all ways to become an ever more vibrant community, rooted in the Eucharist as the source and summit of our lives, and ready, as one family of faith, to say yes to God’s call.
