Annuciation Catholic Church - Houston,Texas
Annunciation Catholic Church is the Second oldest Catholic Church in Houston: Outgrowth of St. Vincent's Parish, Established in 1839.
Let us read a little history of this wonderful Church.
This beautiful Church is one of Houston's Historic Landmarks.
Thru these doors Sacred Art is beheld in awesome abundance!
What a glorious house of God.
To the left of the nave one can see the glory of this Church.
As to the left of the nave on the right one can see the beautiful art in the windows and meditate on the wonders of God.
As our thoughts of Our Lord fill our hearts we gaze upon the altar of this awesome place of worship to God.
The sense of the holy Presence is felt in the quiet, reverent atmosphere to be found here.
One of many reminders that we come to this place to worship the One Who alone makes all good things possible!
We know that Jesus instituted the Eucharist at the Last Supper (Mt. 26:26-28), something the Lord spoke about giving us, as recorded in John 6:36-71. We know the Eucharist is the unbloody representation of the once-only sacrifice of Jesus at Calvary .
The Eucharist - the heart of our world and our lives. When the faithful are nourished by the Eucharist, they are called to share that grace as light to the world.
I am the bread of life; He who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.
The Bible and the Lord's Supper
As one turns to the rear of the Church we are drawn to Jesus on His Cross.
Closer we come to the Passion of Our Lord .
The stained glass art shows us the pain He suffered before He paid the price for our salvation.
The ulitimate sacrifice.
IT IS FINISHED
The Miraculous Infant of Prague.
Our Mother, "Queen of Heaven and earth", the Mother of Our Lord.
Beautiful devotional Chapel
What a wonderful place to pray and meditate on Mary and the Infant Jesus.
Mary and The Bible
The model of the "Pieta" by Michelangelo. It recalls the moment when our Lord, having died on the Cross, is placed in the arms of His Sorrowful Mother. Truly, both Jesus and Mary understand the sorrows of our life! We have great recourse to them in prayer, when ever we feel the stresses. strains and the crosses of our own life.
