Youth Faith Formation here at Annunziata serves the youth of our parish from 1st Grade to 11th Grade. We offer preparations for Baptisms for children over the age of 7, First Sacraments & Confirmation. Our desire for the youth of our parish is to not only teach our children about Christ, but to also form them into mature Disciples of Christ. They are the future of our church, and it is our hope to have them fill the shoes of our mentors, YF Core Team Members, Coordinators, and even our Seminarians, Religious & Priests.
Our classes begin in September and run through May, We are offering IN-PERSON Class Sessions this year.
All of our classes are on Sundays.
(1st-5th meet Sunday Mornings from 9:55 AM and 10:55 AM. This allows parents to choose which Mass they prefer to attend with their children @ 9AM or 11AM) The last scheduled class of every month, one class sponsors the 9AM Mass.
(6th-11th meet Sunday evenings from 6:00PM-8:15PM. Mass is included in their class time) Once a month our evening students are pulled from their regular classes for Formation Nights. We focus on themes, picked by our Youth, plan activities, guest speakers & split them in mixed age small groups.
