Leslie Monette, Director
Our Lady of the Annunciation's Youth and Young Adult programs seeks to build a Catholic community that fosters the devotional, moral, spiritual, social, and vocational lives of its members.
AY'AM (Annunciation Young Adult Ministry) is oriented towards those members of our community "in their late teens, twenties and thirties; single, married, divorced, or widowed; and with or without children" (USCCB Sons and Daughters of Light 7). Our ministry strives to reach the members of our parish community and foster a deeper relationship between young adults, Christ, and the Magisterium of His Church.
Our Lady of the Annunciation’s Young Adult Ministry seeks to build the faith life of those in their 20’s and 30’s through discussions, studies of spiritual texts, and serving our community, proclaiming the Gospel in our lives.

The JPII (John Paul II) Crew provides a faith-focused community for high school-aged youth of Annunciation. The group focuses on the social and spiritual needs of this age group by enjoying games, meals, and movies alongside discussion and lessons about topics of Catholic faith such as the liturgical year, ethical living, prayer, and more. The motto of the JPII Crew, Totus Tuus, not only speaks of Blessed Pope John Paul II's Marian devotion but also reminds us of our own need to say to our Blessed Mother: "I am entirely yours!" Contact Barry at 298-7553 for more information.
The Point is Annunciation’s Middle School Youth Group open to all youth enrolled 6th, 7th, or 8th grades in public, private, parish, or home school programs. The hour-and-a-half gatherings begin with group games, prayer, and food, followed by a lesson or series of activities which tie together Catholic faith and Middle School experience, for example: what impact does my Catholic faith have on my relationships to family, friends, and beyond? What symbols does the Church use for the faith? the MSYG seeks to build knowledge of faith through discussion and a Christ-like atmosphere. Contact Barry at 298-7553 for more information.
