2023 Diocesan MS & HS Youth Rally

What if we actually were to condense all of Scripture, all of Salvation History, all of Jesus’s teachings into one word? What would that one word be? Join other youth from around the diocese as we explore the heart of Scripture and the heart of man: yada (עדי). We are created for intimacy with God, and only intimacy with God will set us free. The day includes music, games, Eucharistic adoration, engaging presentations, lunch, and closing Mass with Bishop Peter Muhich. If you are a high school student who has been on another retreat before visit our Going Deeper Retreat page to learn more about the retreat leading up to the rally.

Fr. James Claver

www.scjesus.org | @servantsofchristjesus

For the Greater Glory of God, and the salvation of our souls, the Servants of Christ Jesus have discovered a call to consecrate themselves completely to Jesus Christ, in radical poverty, chastity and obedience. They are inspired to live the Gospel through the evangelical poverty of St. Francis of Assisi and the apostolic formation of St. Ignatius Loyola. In praise, reverence and service of God our Lord, they are committeed to a life of regular prayer, generous penance, Eucharistic adoration, Marian devotion, and Charismatic worship.
