Cropwalk February 28

February 2, 2016

We are sponsoring Cropwalk, a national program that feeds the hungry – around the world and right here in Bradenton, Florida. One fourth of the donations will go to Our Daily Bread, where many of our parishioners volunteer each week. The rest is spent on national needs. You can join the walk on February 28 or sponsor someone else who will walk. Go to this link to make a credit card donation:

Please help Manatee County CROP Hunger Walk end hunger and poverty in our community and around the world! Together we can make a difference.

Annunciation’s annual High Tea was held Saturday, January 28, 2016.  The rainy day just added to the ambience – everyone felt that they were really in England and had a wonderful time.
