HOW DO I JOIN?
You can simply start showing up to CYO nights. The person in charge will give you a registration packet on your first day. There is a yearly $40 registration fee. Diocese required paperwork is included in the registration packet and must be returned as soon as possible.
WHEN DOES CYO MEET?
Annunciation CYO only meets during the school year; roughly August - May. The group meets on Sundays at 5:30 PM and ends at 7:00 PM.
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL CYO EVENING LOOK LIKE?
CYO Sundays always begin with a meal that runs between 5:30 - 6:00 PM.
Meals are provided by parents and other generous parishioners. See Meal Train link for more details.
Then we play a game for 30 minutes until 6:30 PM.
Games can be anything from kickball to a trivia game. Each week the wining team gets a small prize.
CYO teens are split into 4 teams each school year and compete for cumulative points. The team with the most points at the end of the school year gets a gift card and gets to go bowling with our Pastor.
Lastly, we have a short 30 minute lesson at the end of our time together until 7:00 PM.
See posted schedule for lesson titles.
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?
Leslie Jones, the Youth Director, is responsible for all CYO related activities. All CYO questions should be directed to her. She can be reached by phone or email at

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.
WHO PROVIDES THE CYO MEALS?
Meals are provided by volunteers. Anyone who is interested in providing a meal for CYO can sign up by using the Meal Train link. This will allow you to see who has already signed up to bring something, what they are bringing, and what dates are still in need of meals. All other details can be found on that page.
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.
