We have 28 youth (high school age) and 5 adults traveling to Minneapolis, MN this July for the National Youth Gathering! We will be there for 5 days and with over 30,000 youth in attendance, we're confident this will be an event that will be life-changing for everyone involved! We'll learn about our faith, fellowship with our friends, attend Mass Events, and more! The theme for this NYG is 'Real.Present.God' and is based on Psalm 46, which is where the well known scripture 'Be still, and know that I am GOD' comes from. In today's world and society, that is a great and MUCH NEEDED themed focus for our youth...and adults too! Our youth and families have done a great job raising money so far, but we're just a little short of our goal! We're confident God will provide, as He always does. The funds raised will help us offset the costs of food, transportation, lodging, and spiritual resources. Thank you so much for your generous hearts. More importantly -- please pray for us before and during the trip, that God would use us as His vessel and open our hearts to His words and will.
