Church of the Annunciation Parish.
Are you new to The Parish? We welcome you and hope that you will find not only a parish but also a home here. For 65 years Church of the Annunciation Parish has proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Catholic community of Bloomsbury and surrounding areas. We look forward to your presence as we gather to pray and worship as a community.
Are you a long time parishioner? You can browse through the Church of the Annunciation website and catch up on the latest news about the parish in general or a special ministry you are involved with. Or maybe after reading about a particular organization you will hear your own call to witness and serve Christ with them. Our parish and organizations have places for many different talents and gifts, yours are needed! However great or small the time you can devote to our parish, you do in His name, and we are grateful for your participation.
In the 16th century, Spanish friars introduced the people of the Philippines to Simbang Gabi - the custom of attending Mass on each of the nine days leading up to Christmas. Before the sun rose, and before they headed out to labor in the fields or set out to sea, people would gather to celebrate Advent. We will not be doing 4:00am, but on December 20th at 7:30pm Annunciation Church will host this celebration. Join Us!!
In order to continue the legacy of our founding families, we, the community of the Church of the Annunciation, have as our mission to unite all in God's name and to live the joy of the Gospel.
We share our gifts through prayer, worship, fellowship and service. We are committed to spiritual growth, as well as to knowledge and expression of our faith in God. Under the guidance of the Blessed Mother Mary, we seek to become a cornerstone of discipleship, providing spiritual and loving support for our parish family.
