HOPE & JOY are ministries of the church for all children between the ages of 4-12. HOPE & JOY groups meet on one Sunday of each month, following Sunday School. For more information or to sign-up, please contact the parish office by phone at 212-724-2070 or by contacting Panagiota Bouboulis: pbouboulis@yahoo.com 

Children who are unable to attend Sunday School or who come from other parishes are always welcome.

The kids are offered lunch in Demas Hall and then proceed to the Church Sanctuary to work on their projects. We have chosen to use the sanctuary because it is our hope that the children will become more familiar and comfortable in the sacred space with every activity. The sanctuary lends itself to positive questions and many teaching opportunities.


Young people grades 7 through 12 are encouraged to join our GOYA chapter. GOYA is a national ministry with local chapters, who work to incorporate the four characteristics of worship, witness, service, and fellowship in their everyday lives. The Annunciation's GOYA holds gatherings throughout the year with opportunities to experience the Faith. Whether a group discussion, social outreach, baseball game, or religious retreat, we gather together in Christ’s name.
