Convention Music Ministry:


Teens who will be at Convention are welcome to share their musical talents by playing or singing at our closing liturgy! Rehearsal will begin on February 4th and will be held at St. Bernard's Parish, Buffalo. Contact Mary Palmer for more information. 

Small Group Facilitators: 

Teens and Junior Advisors are needed to serve as small group facilitators.  Training and facilitation materials are provided.

During the Convention, young people have a chance to meet others and have meaningful conversations through Small Group Time.  Each teen attending the Convention is assigned to a random small group.  We hope this will give everyone a chance to meet a few new friends!
