Diocesan Youth Convention



Mark your calendars now for the

66th Annual Diocesan Youth Convention


March 2-4, 2018

In our challenging world, full of questions, fake news, and alternative facts, is there really any such thing as a "true story?" The story Jesus' love for us remains just as true today as it did when He walked this earth. Convention 2018 will help us to explore this True Story and what it--and the Person it is about--mean for our world today!

"The Convention turned out to be a weekend that has had one of the biggest impacts on me. It touched my heart and made me have a new perspective on things I never even realized before. I know I went for a reason, and I'd go back in a heartbeat."

--Youth Participant
