Pastor's Message 

 Pope Francis, in his homilies, speaks of three simple attitudes: hopefulness, openness to being surprised by God and living in joy. In the midst of difficulties God acts and surprises us. Jesus shows us that the face of God is a loving Father. Sin and death have been defeated. Christians cannot be pessimists! We cannot look like someone in constant mourning. If we are truly in love with Christ and if we sense how much he loves us, our hearts will “light up” with joy. “Light up” is an apt expression for the Easter season. The paschal candle, a symbol of the presence of the risen Christ among the people of God, is placed in a prominent place in the sanctuary. The light of Christ shines in and through us.

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
