BAPTISM:  Parents who are expecting a child should call the Parish Office to arrange to take part in the Baptism Preparation Program.  Baptisms take place once a month during the 11:30am Mass after completion of the Initial and Liturgy Preparation Sessions.

CONFIRMATION:  Confirmation preparation is made by participating in the Annunciation religious education program. Please see the Youth Faith Formation tab for more information on our formation program.

FIRST EUCHARIST and FIRST RECONCILIATION:  First Holy Communion and First Reconciliation preparation is made through the parish faith formation office, for students in both public schools and Annunciation Elementary School. Please see the Youth Faith Formation tab for more details. 

RCIA:  Adults and children aged seven and over who wish to enter the Church or complete their sacraments are welcome to participate in the RCIA process.  Please visit our  RCIA page and contact the Parish Office for more information.

RECONCILIATION:  Confessions are heard each Saturday at 4:00 PM, or by appointment.  

ANNOINTING OF THE SICK:  This sacrament is administered during the 5:00PM Mass on the first Saturday of the month.  Persons who are homebound, in the hospital, or in nursing homes are asked to call the Parish Office for the Sacrament of Anointing.

LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION:  To be a godparent for Baptism or a Confirmation sponsor the Church requires that a letter of recommendation is obtained.  This letter can be issued only to members of our parish who are Baptized and Confirmed, registered in the parish for at least three months, and regularly attend Mass and receive the sacraments.  Regular use of envelopes (even if empty) indicates attendance at Mass.  Married persons must have been married in conformity with the laws of the Church.  Out-of-town college students should receive a letter from their campus minister and those serving in the military should receive a letter from their Chaplain.


Stewardship is having the wisdom to understand that everything we have is a gift from God.
