Parish Food Pantry Our parish collects food for the needy every Sunday. Please bring nonperishable canned or boxed food and offer it as your gift to those in need.
Remember Annunciation Parish in Your Will
A SIGNIFICANT DAY “And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were” (Acts 2:2). The Holy Spirit’s arrival on that first Pentecost was signaled by a rush of wind. We all know what it’s like when our windows are open just as a summer storm rises up. Curtains fly, papers become airborne, house plants shudder, dust is scattered. A rush of wind disrupts the orderliness of our home. The coming of the Holy Spirit, as celebrated each year at Pentecost, can also disrupt ways that have become comfortable and orderly. The Church always needs Pentecost. We need the breath of God’s Spirit to blow away any complacency or malaise that has settled into our faith. Jesus breathes on his disci-ples and they receive the Holy Spirit. With that reception comes the power to share the Good News of salvation. Today, this is no less true for us.

Notification of Hospitalization Illness or Impending Surgery
Hospitals are required to observe confidentiality and priva-cy laws and are no longer able to inform parishes of admis-sions of parishioners. It is now necessary for either the pa-tient, him/her self, or a family member to notify the parish of his/her hospitalization. Arrangements then can be made for the parish priest to visit the patient. Because of privacy laws we do not publish the names of the sick in our bulletin or announce them at Mass unless the patient or a family member gives us permission to do so. Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick will be adminis-tered upon request prior to a scheduled hospital admission or before any elective surgery. Please call the rectory 973-694-5700. All calls are kept confidential.
