Welcome To Annunciation Parish

Pastor's Message 

As pastor I express my appreciation to all the volunteers for their good work and to all the folks who came to enjoy our 77th annual summer picnic. It was a grand social event and a significant fundraiser for our parish. There is a calm after our summer picnic that allows us to catch our breath and enjoy the remaining days of summer. But there is a stirring within our church, as councils, committees and organization are getting ready to reconvene. On Saturday September 6 we will have an appreciation dinner after the 5:00 PM Mass for Sr. Marilyn Dudek, the Principal of our Catholic School. On Wednesday morning September 10 and on Thursday evening September 11 we begin 10 sessions of Bible Study on the Book of Exodus – Called to Freedom. On Friday September 12 there will be an open house and concert by Michael James Mette (check the band out on YouTube) in the gym for all our parishioners, young and old, as we showcase the new reconfiguration of our school building and inaugurate our Youth Faith Formation classes and programs. You’ll be able to see the new teen center in Langley Hall, our Early Childhood Learning Center for Pre-K 3 & 4 and the expanded meeting room adjacent to the school kitchen. There is still sadness in our parish over the closing of our grade school but there is also new hope and energy as we keep the vision and hold to the mission entrusted to us: “With Mary we announce that God is with us in Jesus Christ. Moved by the Holy Spirit we strive to create a faith community of love and hope, of welcome and service, where others will discover in and with us that Christ is Life.”

Annunciation now accepting Pre-K applications 

Annunciation Early Childhood Learning Center, located at 7580 Clinton St. in Elma, is now accepting applications for its 2014-15 pre-school program that will begin in September. Pre-K3 will be offered from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, while Pre-K4 will be held from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Following the New York State core standards for preschools, the primary goal in Annunciation Pre-K is to have your child’s first experience in school be a positive, fun and successful one! 
Pre-K students at Annunciation review colors and shapes and begin pre-math, pre-writing and pre-reading skills, and work to develop the social and learning skills that are important for academic success. Students also begin using sign language as a second language and enjoy art, music, library, computers, physical education and science. This is also the perfect age to begin learning prayers. 
A $100 non-refundable registration fee and a copy of the child’s birth certificate are required when an application is submitted. Students must be potty trained before the start of the pre-school year.
For more information or to schedule a tour of the Pre-K, please call the office at 681-1327 or email office.annunciation@gmail.com
