Promoting Convention

65th Annual Diocesan Youth Convention  

Friday, March 3 - Sunday, March 5, 2017

What is the Convention?

The Convention is a weekend conference in February for high school youth and adult chaperones. The weekend includes liturgy, reconciliation, keynote speakers, breakout sessions, award presentations & a dance!

Complete information about the Convention - including all registration forms - is available on this web site. 

How to Promote the Convention:

  • Show the promo video (coming soon!)  to your religious education classes, youth group, your own teenager and his/her friends... Anyone who will watch it — and invite them to join the fun!
  • Send the video link to your young people (and their parents). Ask them to share it with their friends! Together, we can make this go viral!
  • Share the Convention event page on Facebook and LIKE the Department of Youth and Young Adult Ministry at the same time!
  • Contact Kathy Goller to ask if members of the Diocesan Youth Board can come to speak with youth at your parish about the Convention.  Teens are always more interested in what other teens have to say!
  • Use this one-page customizable flyer to provide basic information to teens and parents!
