Por varios meses, Edith y su equipo de jovenes y adultos han estado planeando esta conferencia... y al fin estamos cerca! 9 dias!!!!!
This conference reaches out to all of the Hispanic youth and young adults of the area, inviting folks from Kansas and other Missouri dioceses as well. This is quite an event!
Last weekend, when I was in Emporia, KS to announce this conference and invite the youth to join us, the pastor told me that this sounded familiar. After mass, he remembered that the youth from his parish had gone to this conference last year. Upon returning, they eagerly met with him and said they wanted to start a youth group of their own. They had assembled their own leadership team and regular meeting time and only required his permission to get started. The story actually made it into the Archdiocesan newspaper, "The Leaven"
This is an amazing story, and one that we hope to replicate in our own diocese among our Hispanic neighborhoods. This conference is bound to inspire young people to gather together in community and strive to live out what they experienced in meeting Jesus. May we have many more blessings! PAZ
