Our Youth Group at NCYC in Indianapolis
SJB Youth Ministry participated in the premier conference for high school youth - the National Catholic Youth Conference. 25,000 teens from all over the country gathered for this conference "Called By Name". There was Mass and the Eucharist celebrated by Cardinal Cupich on the first day, and the closing Mass by Archbishop Gomez and hundreds of clergy from all over the world! We heard dynamic speakers, reunited with good friends, shared stories of faith, hope, and love, and developed stronger relationships with other parishes! We are Called to Serve...are we ready to say YES?
