Youth Ministry

Annunciation Youth Ministry

Our Ministry programs for teens and young adults play an important role in providing support, guidance, and faith exploration during challenging times in the lives of our children.

Children can talk about issues on their minds, build strong friendships, receive guidance, and best of all, have fun!
AYM is one of the largest youth ministry programs in the archdiocese and is renowned for its wide range of high-quality youth ministry opportunities.

Junior High (Grades 7-8)

Junior high years can be difficult and awkward with complex friendships, puberty and more demanding school work. That is why the need for an accepting, safe, fun, challenging, and faith exploration environment is so important and appealing to youth. The junior high youth group meets throughout the year on Wednesdays.



Senior High (Grades 9-12)

Senior high youth are experiencing a lot of change in their lives. Different schools, new friends, expanded entertainment options, and challenging social situations. With all this transition, our goal is to provide another safe and stable place for your son or daughter to explore their interests, deepen their faith and maintain positive relationships. The senior high youth group meets throughout the year on either Sundays or Mondays.
