Junior Youth Conference

Middle School (6th-9th graders and all Confirmation students)

This one day program is designed to bring about conversion among the participants (grades 6-9) so that they may live completely and conquer the world for Christ! This conference is Eucharistic-centered and catechetical in nature, yet very fun and exciting for everyone.

Called to be Saints
