It may change tomorrow, but for today’s journey (a small chunk of time seems more manageable!), I will annunciate forward, actively, trusting you to keep me in your care.

The Feast of the Annunciation, normally celebrated on March 25th, was transferred to today, April 8th. Any feast which falls during Holy Week or Easter Week is moved to a later date, because of the importance of these sacred days in the Church’s calendar.
The Annunciation was celebrated in the East as early as 430 AD. Luke’s Gospel gives us the account of the Angel Gabriel’s visit to the Virgin Mary.
V 1. How can this be done in me, who have not known a man? The Spirit of the Lord will come over you ,and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.
V. 2 Therefore the holy one to be born of you will be called the Son of God.
It’s late spring and time to send out some important mailings to friends and supporters. Our volunteers have mobilized to help us share about events theatrical, musical, liturgical – hopefully all inspirational! It’s still nice to hold the written word and image in your hands isn’t it?
One of our greatest joys is when others come to pray with us. Please visit the calendar that lists the year’s calendar of liturgies and events at the Community of Jesus, and especially at the Church of the Transfiguration.
We look forward to saying “Welcome” in person and hope that along with your own church home, we might be a blessing in your life.
We’re very excited to launch a new website for the Community of Jesus. Please browse the site and feel free to let us know if you find anything amiss or have any suggestions.
