What can I expect from the Middle School Rallies?

The middle school rallies are abridged versions of the high school convention. The rallies open and close with prayer and feature Vince Nims, who leads the students through prayerful and dynamic song and reflection.  See the links above for more details about dates/times and locations. 

I'd like to know more about 

VINCE NIMS The Roamin'Catholic

... delivers a bold, Christ-centered message that challenges YOU to move toward Christ and life life uncontrolled by this world and its values, and even more importantly, grounded in Truth.  Vince is a dynamic story-teller who pays attention to the way God workins in and thorugh our day-to-day experiences.  You will laugh, cry, wonder, sing and pray during his keynotes.

Who plans the Youth Convention?

Each year, the graduates of the Office of Faith Formation's Christian Leadership Institute assist in planning the annual convention. They also assist with the Middle School Rallies. Thus, the 2018 Annual Diocesan Youth Convention would not be what it is without the 2017 CLI Graduates who developed this year's theme- Be Not Afraid..For You Have Found Favor - and who are spearheading the planning of this great event! 

What is the cost of the Youth Convention?

$20 per person, no cost for chaperones
