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!
