I am a practicing Catholic, baptised, confirmed, my Dad is a CCD teacher, and I am very involved at my church back home in Dallas..... the point is, I'm not some non Catholic tour...

Editorial review from Citysearch 4/8/2013

Seriously Annunciation Catholic Church has a very old Reverend(nearly 79 yrs.) and beautiful,awesome,and holy feel as far as Churches goes. The situtation with the Church Organ is very sad and the fact that now the church lost her organist after 17yrs. is even sadder. Mindyou he tried to repair this organ himself but felt this was too much for him to bear. I really would like for someone who would be very generous in taking the time to help this nearly 150 yr. old Church get back on her feet. But still a great places from a parishoner's point of view(been going since 1987). more

Annunciation does have an organ 12/8/2011

There is an organ. The historic 1924 Pilcher pipe organ is being brought back to life after the former choir director ruined many of the parts. Most of the organ is now working and the original console will be on-line in 2012. There are beautiful, unique sounds in this instrument and it is a fine example of the romantic/orchestral style, freestanding in the room on the central axis. Please note that negative comments are counterproductive, and attempts to sell the church a new organ by a business should be viewed as just that. more

ANNUNCIATION - HAS NO ORGAN 5/4/2011

Here is my take on ACC: Here we have an absolutely beautiful structure...historic if you will. Absolutely, probably the best of the period in design and appointments. Here in the down-town area with a glorious presence...from the outside and inside....BUT (that word again!) the one thing that keeps this church from being REALLY good is the sad fact that they have no principal musical instrument..none...not...nada! With all of the musical instruments and musicians in the city capable of making this church sparkle with music and become a presence in Houston....nothing do they have. Now some of you will say that they have an organ in the balcony...but THAT organ is a joke. Hardly nothing plays, notes don't play, the pedals don't work, the console is a major disaster just waiting to fall on someone and break their bones!...held up with a 2x4 mind you! Now here is the situation: Few want to have their wedding there because THERE IS NO ORGAN. Even if this poor excuse for an organ worked perfectly...it would still be just a whisper in the dark. Here is my offer: We have in our brokerage, a contract to liquidate 2 magnificent instruments. 1. An Aeolian Skinner 3 manual pipe organ. This organ is offered for free. Can you imagine. It is worth about $100,000 but the church is selling the property and that goes with it unless some church would like to have it. 2. We have a Rodgers digital 3 manual Concert organ that will do ANYTHING musically and it is available for a very small price compared to its price when purchased ($170,000). NOW...is there anyone out there that would care to do something with one of these magnificent instruments to bring some glory to this Catholic Church. Anyone can call me at 281-488-2055 to see, play, discuss and consider a donation, gift or get behind a project to secure one of these instruments that will put this church on the map and give it some reality in music. My goodness this church could be on an equal with the brand new Catholic Cathedral! To let this pass and allow this wonderful church to go begging for an organ when there are two that are available for almost nothing, is sinful if anything would be. Lets see what someone out there can do about this...some one who cares and has the interest to jump into a significant organ addition to this church that will become a musical ambassador to the city. I've done my part, you do yours...(you know who you are!) Call me. Anthony more

Rude, Stuck up, not very ""Catholic"" acting.... 4/4/2011

I am a practicing Catholic, baptised, confirmed, my Dad is a CCD teacher, and I am very involved at my church back home in Dallas..... the point is, I'm not some non Catholic tourist off the street, or someone who claims to be Catholic but only goes to Mass and/or Confession every once in a while. I am visiting Houston, and saw this church online. I decided to go to Confession at 5 pm, then Mass at 5:30 this past Sunday evening..... more

Beautiful and holy 5/6/2010

Annunciation Catholic Church is such a wonderful parish! I feel so holy and at peace when I attend mass! Father Golasinski is such a awesome preist! You can tell that he is such a holy man. We have the upmost respect for him. Thank you to Father Golasinski! My wife and I had the honor of being married at Annunciation Parish back in 1996. Our son was baptized at Annunciation Parish in 1997. We love Annunciation Catholic Church! I invite you to attend mass to see for yourself how truly beautiful and holy Annunciation Catholic Church truly is! more
