Alex Ducharme - Annunciation Parish Youth Coordinator

Hello! My name is Alex and I'm 21 years old from Windsor, ON! About 3 years ago I was preparing myself to serve in my first year as a NET Missionary, going across the country sharing the Catholic faith with the youth of Canada. About halfway through that year God put a call in my heart that I wasn't done what He had tasked me to do. I was blessed to journey with NET for a second year and I was able to reach so many more young lives across Canada. After two years God sent me home to take time for myself and refuel. I've been working as a delivery and maintenance technician with Big Beaver Ice and Coffee Co. all while studying Youth Ministry on an online course through Franciscan University. I was praying what my next step might be and here I am. I have been selected as a Youth Coordinator in Ottawa for the upcoming year.

God has blessed me in so many ways. As mentioned before I am currently taking online classes with Franciscan University. I have been an avid musician for about 10 years now beginning with drums and percussion and eventually leading into bass and guitar. I love country music and am definitely a country boy at heart! Family is a huge part of my life, while some live farther than some we still stay connected. I have been blessed to be raised in a Catholic family with my little brother. Although my younger years weren't the easiest, I stayed close to my faith and God kept me on the straight and narrow.

As I begin the new journey with NET I ask that you keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I would also like to ask that you strongly consider supporting me both spiritually and financially. To everyone who continues to support NET thank you so much, and if this is your first time welcome and thank you! God Bless!
