Join us Sunday, March 29 after the 11:00am service for our Annual Parish Wide Clean Up Day! We have many projects to work on inside the buildings and outside on the grounds. This is not a youth sponsored event, so adults and families are invited to work together as a community to make Annunciation shine! A hot dog lunch will be served before we get to work. There will be yard work, window washing, pew polishing, book straightening and more! If you are planning to work in the yards, please bring your own rake.


What is Tenebrae?

On theWednesdayHoly Week, April 1st, at 7:00 p.m., we will gather for a service of Tenebrae (Latin for "shadows" or "darkness").distinctive ceremony of Tenebrae includes the gradual extinguishing of candles until only a single candle, considered a symbol of our Lord, remains.also includes a series of readings, hymns and anthems, which form an extended meditation upon, and prelude to, the events in our Lord’s life between the Last Supper and the Resurrection whole, Tenebrae is a meditative, moving experience that lends itself to our focus upon our Lord during Holy Week.. We encourage you to make time for this significant service, and look forward to seeing you there.

Building Peace in the Holy Land
Tent of Nations founder to speak at Annunciation April 20th.  Daoud Nassar, a Lutheran farmer living in Israel is the founder of Tent of Nations, a widely recognized peacemaking
organization around the world.  Each year Daoud visits countries throughout the globe, telling the story of his 100 acre farm.   Daher’s Vineyard, an organic farm located on the land is a site
dedicated to building bridges between people, and between people and the land.  The mission of the farm is to bring people from many different countries and cultures together to develop mutual
understanding, to promote respect for one another and the shared environment, and to learn, to share, and to build bridges of understanding and hope.  Each year people from around the world visit the farm, assisting those who run empowerment camps for women and children, or with the farm itself, and learning about the farm’s dedicated history to the promotion of peacemaking
between nations and cultures in the region.  
It is not often that we have the opportunity to hear firsthand from those who are actively engaged in Christian peacemaking efforts in the Middle East.  We are more likely to see only sound bites of violence and retribution on our television screens.  He will be in Dallas for three days, and we have scheduled his visit with us for Monday, April 20th, from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.  We will meet in the Oratory Chapel where we will hear a brief presentation in order to have more time for
discussion, as there will undoubtedly be many questions we may wish to ask of a Christian living in the midst of the continuing struggle for peace in the Middle East.
