WHAT DOES A TYPICAL CYO EVENING LOOK LIKE?
CYO Sundays always begin with a meal that runs between
5:30 - 7:00 PM.
Meals are provided by parents and other generous parishioners. See Meal Train link for more details.
CAN I GET SERVICE HOURS AT CYO?
Yes. Throughout the year we do various service projects. The big ones are Fall Festival, babysitting for Annunciation Catholic School fundraisers, Easter Festival, and the Pentecost International Food Fest. CYO is responsible for all planning related to these parish held events. Just ask if you need a signature on any documentation. Dates for these events are posted on the CYO schedule.
WHO COORDINATES CYO?
Confirmation is scheduled this year in 2021. If your child is in 10-11-12 grade and has not been confirmed, please fill out a registration
form and return to the office.
HOW DOES ANNUNCIATION CYO STAY IN CONTACT WITH PARENTS AND TEENS?
We use Flocknote to send group emails and text messages. Flocknote does not require that you sign up or download anything. The Youth Director is responsible for entering your contact information in. If you would like to enter yourself into the system you may either use the text to join feature (text 'accyouth' to 84576) or click on this link.
ARE THERE OTHER WAYS I CAN HELP CYO?
Yes! You can sign up to help out on a specific Sunday or you can help by being a chaperone for an off campus event such as a movie night at Malco Theaters. All volunteers are required to go through the Protection of Children training. Click here to sign up to sign up to help on a Sunday and here to help with an off campus event.
