Annunciation Parishioners Spread the Holiday Spirit to Those in Need

Annunciation Parishioners Spread the Holiday Spirit to Those in Need

Parishioners of the Church of the Annunciation in Elma each year share the joy of the Christmas season through the Stars of Bethlehem program. On Thanksgiving weekend, stars are displayed on church windows with the first name, age and situation of a person who needs some hope, joy and love at Christmas.

Father Eugene Ulrich, pastor of Annunciation, asks parishioners to reflect on the many blessings God has given them in their lives and out of gratitude take a star, if they are able, pray for that individual and purchase a gift to bless them at Christmas. Gifts are brought back the third weekend of Advent.

Imagine having only $6.36 a day to spend on food, living in a house that only heated up to 60 degrees, not having reliable transportation, or not owning a winter coat or boots. For more than 200,000 Western New Yorkers, this is daily life.  

The Rural Outreach Center (ROC), which serves the southern communities of Western New York, is raising awareness about the challenges of living in poverty through a new community-wide campaign during the month of January 2017 called “ROC Resolutions.” During each week of the month, the spotlight will shine on a different obstacle often encountered by those living in poverty. Week one (Jan. 2-8) will focus on food, while week two (Jan. 9-15) will focus on utilities, week three (Jan. 16-22) on transportation, and week four (Jan. 23-30) on clothing.
