Diocesan Youth Convention

Save the Date!

67th Annual Diocesan Youth Convention

March 1-3, 2019

Buffalo Grand Hotel

The young Church in our Diocese will once again gather to celebrate the Holy Spirit at work within us and among us as we come together for Convention 2019! We hope that you will plan on joining us March 1-3, 2019 for one of the first events at the newly renovated Buffalo Grand Hotel. 

We hope you will join us this year to POWER UP your relationship with God! For many of us, it's hard to stay connected to God in the midst of everything else we do in a day. We tend to forget about Him and the ways he makes a difference in our lives. At Convention 2019, we will explore what it means to be connected to God and the ways he can help us POWER UP for our mission as disciples in the world!

We are excited to welcome this year's keynote speaker, Robert Feduccia! Robert began his ministry career immediately after high school when he served on the National Evangelization Team (N.E.T.), a retreat ministry for high school and middle school youth. Always feeling a call to ministry, he entered St. Meinrad College Seminary. After graduating from St. Meinrad, he continued his graduate studies in theology at the Catholic University of America. Robert has been a speaker for Life Teen Conferences, the National Catholic Youth Conference, and World Youth Day. He now lives in the Nashville area with his wife Kathleen and their four children. Visit his website to learn more!
