The Transfiguration Tour is a seven-stop tour that will offer high school youth a historical and spiritual journey through the Catholic Churches of the greater Fort Wayne area. The Office of Youth Ministry is hosting this bus and church tour on the Feast of the Transfiguration, Monday, Aug. 6, to promote youth ministry initiatives that support young people in their lives of prayer and vocational discernment. Joining the youth on the bus will be priests, religious and seminarians. The Transfiguration Tour combines history and tradition with the needs of today by offering our high school youth a liturgical view of our beautiful churches as well as a unique opportunity to spend quality time with priests, seminarians, religious, and lay men and women. The seven-part tour includes landmark churches such as the first stop at 9:30 a.m. at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception and Cathedral Museum, followed by St. Peter, St. Louis Besancon and concluding with 5:30 p.m. evening Mass and family dinner hosted by the Knights of Columbus at St. Joseph Hessen Cassel. The Transfiguration Tour will allow young people to embrace the themes and topics of the upcoming Synod in Rome where in two months the bishops of the world will meet for the Synod on Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment. Interested high school youth (9-12 grade) are welcome to register for the Transfiguration Tour online with the Office of Youth Ministry: www.fwsbym.com. Registration is just $15/person.
