Installment of New Members

The Rosary Society welcomes with joy new members and installs them twice a year, at the Annunciation BVM feast in March and Our Lady of Rosary in October.

The Rosary Society is well known for the Annual Turkey Dinner that takes place each year on Sunday before Thanksgiving. This is the primary fundraising activity to support all ministries and responsibilities of the Society. This event includes: delicious meal, fresh baked goods, Bingo with great prizes, a silent auction with a fabulous array of more than 100 donated items, ranging from gift baskets and homemade quilts, and many other attractions. The Turkey Dinner is a kind of Home Coming opportunity for many friends and family members of our Parish living in surrounding communities.

May The Queen of the Most Holy Rosary intercede special graces for everyone helping the Rosary Society in its ministry of serving the Annunciation BVM Parish.
