STEWARDSHIP
Stewardship literally means "the job of supervising or taking care of something". When it comes to our church, we believe that we "give" stewardship, but in all actuality, we should "take" stewardship of the Annunciation. We need to watch over it. We need to take care of it. We need to nurture it. The church needs us as much as we need it. Our job as parishioners and as stewards is to "take care" of our church, like it has taken care of us.

Celebrating 100 Years
The 100th Anniversary album is almost here – and believe us, it is worth the wait!
We are now taking orders for the Album, and you can now secure your copy using the link below, by visiting the church office, or by visiting the Hellenic Center the four Sundays after the books are delivered (early July – TBD).

 

Albums are $75 each and include over 200 family histories as well as the history of our church and our parochial and fraternal groups, and 100 years of history in pictures. Upon request, those outside of the Sacramento area may have their Album(s) mailed to them for an additional $20 per book.

 

If you need to pay for any family history pages or family pictures that are included in the Album, please use the same link below, or visit the church office to make that payment.

 

Costs for album pages are as follows:

  • $180 – per Full Page
  • $100 – per Half Page
  • $20 – per Single Picture
Once Albums have arrived, the Albums will be available for pick-up on Sundays at coffee hour after church for a one-month period of time. After that month, Albums will be available for pick-up at the church office on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
Please note that Albums will not be distributed to any individuals until payment has been made for both family history pages/single photos and Album books.
Thank you to everyone who attended the 100 Year Celebration Gala.  It was a wonderful event and the perfect opportunity to come together, once again, with friends, family, and loved ones. The pictures of the event are now available to view and download on the Annunciation Flickr Page.  We also have a link to the 100 Year Video that was shown during the presentation.
