Julianna Squires - Annunciation Parish Youth Coordinator

Welcome! My name is Julianna Squires and I am from Surrey, British Columbia. Tucked in between the mountains and the ocean, I realized what a privilege it has been to grow up in such a beautiful country!

In my beautiful home province is my incredible family. I am the oldest of three with a brother and a  sister and my loving and encouraging parents. My entire life I have been very blessed to have grown up in a Catholic home and attend a Catholic school. Through those formative years, I have been able to hear the good news about the love Christ has for me. Although through my time in ministry I have learned that not everyone has had this opportunity. Thousands of youth across Canada do not know how unconditionally loved they are, and they need to know. 

Through my time with NET, I have served as a missionary in Fort McMurray Alberta in 2017-2018. This was one of the most life-changing experiences for more than just the people there but myself as well. Especially as we were able to be a part of a community that had experienced such devastation but was rebuilding hope. This past year I served as a Team Supervisor for teams 1 and 2, our travelling Retreat teams. It was an honour and a privilege to be so closely connected to our generous missionaries. For this upcoming year, I will be serving as the Annunciation Parish Youth Worker, working on the front lines building up youth ministry in a parish here in Ottawa. 

I am excited to embark on this new journey and I would be so honoured to have you as a part of my team! Thank you in advance for all you have done and continue to do to build up the culture of evangelization! God bless!
