Annunciation Salt & Light Ministry
You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.” (Matthew 5:13-16)

Salt & Light is a service/outreach ministry at Annunciation Parish and School, having been established in May 2014 by a group of Annunciation parishioners and Annunciation Catholic School faculty members who had participated in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati’s Salt & Light program hosted by Annunciation Parish during Lent 2014.  The committee exists to further promote social outreach ministry and understanding of Catholic Social teaching in the parish and school.
All are welcome to join this committee, which holds quarterly meetings.  There is also a Salt & Light Family Ministry, which involves families in service projects with the St. George Food Pantry throughout the year.

Some of the highlights of our Salt & Light Ministry during 2015 include:

Raising awareness about and advocacy for the plight of Persecuted Christians and those of other faiths being persecuted for their religious beliefs.  One concrete action of our Annunciation S & L ministry is assisting Catholic Charities with Refugee Resettlement Services.

Expanding awareness of and participating in CRS Rice Bowl, our Annunciation Parish & School Lenten Outreach.  In Lent 2015, S & L hosted our first CRS Rice Bowl Luncheon here at Annunciation Parish, and a second is being planned for Lent 2016 on Sunday, February 14, 2016 following our 11:00 a.m. Mass. Our efforts in expanding Annunciation’s participation in CRS Rice Bowl resulted in Annunciation Parish being the recipient of a 2015 CRS Rice Bowl Challenge Grant sponsored by the Catholic Social Action Office of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.

Our S & L Family Ministry assisted with several projects at the St. George Interfaith Food Pantry.
Salt & Light Survey

Many Annunciation parishioners give of their time, talents and treasure to assist and support community service organizations throughout Greater Cincinnati. Blessed are you!

The Salt and Light Committee, which is a new ministry at Annunciation, is researching ways in which our parish might serve others who are in need. It would be helpful to know what charitable activities you, the parishioners, are currently involved in, and how/if you are interested in being active in the efforts of Salt & Light.

To that end, please take a few minutes to complete this survey. There are six questions including a space for your comments at the end. Thank you for your time!
