Diocesan Youth Convention
you for helping over 800 young people, youth ministry leaders, volunteers,
staff, exhibitors and others to be "Positively Dangerous" at the 65th
Annual Diocesan Youth Convention! This
theme came to life through personal stories, shared faith experiences, and helping
others in need through service. Those
present came to understand more deeply what is required of a Positively
Dangerous disciple, and we were sent back to our families, friends and
communities to live our faith out loud in a contagious manner.
It is our hope that this experience will continue to inspire
us all to continue to live in a Positively Dangerous manner, with a renewed
enthusiasm and passion for our faith. We
pray that it encourages us to continue to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ
to our parishes, schools, work places, and communities.
Mark your calendars now for the
66th Annual Diocesan Youth Convention

"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."
What is the Convention?
The convention is a weekend conference
for high school youth and their adult chaperones. The weekend includes
liturgy, reconciliation, keynote speakers, breakout sessions, award
presentations & dance. It is a powerful experience combining faith,
fellowship, and fun. Won't you consider joining us? All of the
