About The Event
It’s an incredible spiritual experience! You can meet people from all over. You’ll get to know people who share your beliefs and also some who’s disagree with your views, but with whom you can discuss differences and still be friends. You’ll be able to take part in HUGE and EXCITING liturgy (people can volunteer as acolytes and Eucharistic Ministers). You’ll take part in a mission activity where you’ll be helping people and serving God. You may even learn some new things, grow and change as you broaden your experience and watch God move in others (and in yourself). And you’ll be able to sleep in a college dorm and experience college cafeteria food (ok, maybe not a selling point, but still an experience!).
Who can attend?
We encourage all high school youth to attend! Youth will have needed to completed the 9th through 12th grades by the summer of 2020 in order to be eligible. We hope to have diverse group of faithful, mature high schoolers who have the ability to handle travel, speak up in groups, have the language to share their own faith journeys, and to be trustworthy in honoring the covenant for behavior required of all participants.
How will we get there?
We will travel as a group. The method of travel will depend of the cost of transportation.
What is the cost?
The minimum cost will be $400 for room, board and programming. Travel will be additional and a rough total estimate for the event will be $600. Scholarships will be limited and priority will be given to those who register by January 10, 2020.
