Welcome To Annunciation Parish

Our Doors Are Open

Pastor's Message

 The Diocese of Buffalo will be taking part in nationwide program entitled:  “Catholics Come Home.” Bishop Richard Malone stresses the importance of evangelization.  It is our parish mission: “With Mary, we joyfully announce: ‘God with us’ in Jesus Christ. Moved by the Holy Spirit, we strive to create a faith community of love and hope, of prayer, welcome and service where others will discover in and with us that Christ is Life.” Some folks may take a second look after seeing a television spot or checking out our webpage but the number one reason people come back to Church is because someone with whom the person is close invites them back. People stay when they are warmly welcomed at worship and have a sense of belonging.  We are ambassadors of the Great King.  As pastor I extend an invitation to you to join us for prayer, at social events and in ministry.

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
