About Us


Annunciation of the Lord Catholic Church

Vision Statement

To know and love God and be Christ to one another.

Mission Statement

We are a vibrant, Catholic community, embracing our diversity and united in the Eucharist. We will cultivate the good news of Jesus Christ by fostering justice and mercy among all of God’s people, committing to Catholic formation and education, and inviting others to join in our mission. Fortified by the grace of the Holy Spirit and guided by our Lord, we commit ourselves to the responsible stewardship of all of God’s gifts.

Established in 1871, we are located in the heart of the Tennessee Valley in Decatur, Alabama. This faith community provides pastoral, spiritual and educational activities for the growing Catholic Community in Morgan County, currently over 1,500 families.
