Welcome to Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church

Since 1875, this beautiful, Gothic-style stone Catholic Church in Aurora, Illinois – with its soaring steeple and pealing bells – has welcomed members home for a deeply spiritual experience of faith and life.  The mission and ministries of the church echo the example of Mary, the Blessed Virgin, who became a vehicle of grace during her miraculous experience. Mary is our first disciple, our model of grace, who delivered Jesus our Savior to the world.

Annunciation welcomes our members into a community of faith with a Christ-centered, genuinely welcoming experience.  Whatever brings you to our church, you are always welcome to our blessed home!

Parish Info and Updates

Blood Drive

Our next Blood Drive will be Sunday, June 18 from 8 am – 12:30 pm.
We will be in the Versiti bus in the school turn-around.

At our last blood drive, we had 9 people register and 6 people were able to give 7 units of blood.  This means up to 17 lives were saved!  Our goal for this blood drive on June 18th is to register 15 appointments. Please celebrate life and dads (the 18th is also Father’s Day!) by donating blood with us.

We have a new publishing company for the bulletin (Diocesan) which means a different deadline.  If you would like something in the bulletin, the deadline is THURSDAY, BY NOON, unless otherwise stated.
