Youth ministry at the Church of the Annunciation strives to lead all teens and their families into a deeper relationship with Christ through His Church. Rooted in the Eucharist and led by the intercession of Our Lady, we seek to unleash the power of the young Church through formation and fellowship.
Sarah Saltarelli - Youth Minister
Sarah was born and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado. She left her beloved mountains behind to go to school at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio where she earned her BA in Psychology. Through her college years she worked for several different youth ministry organizations, where she developed a love for serving the youth. After college she experienced a call to work with teens for the Church and has been a youth minister ever since. She hopes that everything in her life - from praying with teens and talking to parents, to playing soccer and winning at pizza eating contests - will serve as an opportunity to share Jesus with others.
