On the morning of June 24, 14 youth and their adult chaperones anxiously awaited the flight that would take them to South Bend, Indiana for the Notre Dame (ND) Vision Youth Ministry Conference. The beauty of ND Vision is there are actually two conferences going on at one time. The youth ministry conference, which has a few hundred youth, places each youth in a small group with others from around the country. Within these small groups the youth are able to really connect with others, and as groups they grow together in their faith.

As the girls began to arrive to Camp Grace on the evening of April 26 they seemed excited to be there. This weekend retreat for girls was planned by a team of youth ministers and volunteers from around the diocese. The object was to bring speakers and activities that would help the teens grow in their faith and to challenge them to find ways to have a deeper relationship with Christ. Let Hope be An Anchor for your Soul was the theme of the retreat.

MACON--What distinguished this year’s Diocesan Youth Conference (DYC), held Feb. 1-3 at the Marriott City Center in Macon, was not the sessions offered, number of participants, or even the location—though all were unique in their own way.


As in past years, approximately 200 high school-aged teens from parishes throughout the diocese gathered for a weekend to grow in their faith.

INDIANAPOLIS--Picture a sea of LED cell phone flashlights a thousand strong swaying back and forth to music—comparable at a distance to the cigarette lighters of old—against the backdrop of a seven-level multipurpose stadium.

During the final two weeks of June, a handful of public and private buildings sprinkled throughout the Savannah deanery received fresh coats of paint, the yards of others were cleaned and the hunger of the needy physically satisfied.


Approximately 50 teens completed these and other projects over the course of two one-week sessions, as part of Prayer and Action, the diocese's summer mission program for high school students.


The buildings, however, were not alone in their facelifts.
