FaithFest high school youth rally set for Oct. 23

WARSAW — FaithFest, the diocesan high school youth rally, will be held on Sunday, Oct. 23, at Lakeview Middle School in Warsaw.

This year’s theme “No Other Way” will focus on Jesus Christ as the Way, the Truth and the Life, and give teens tools for living out their faith in a world of relativism.

Little iApps, the creators of “Confession: A Roman Catholic App” will present on media and the new evangelization, and Father Anthony Giambrone, a Dominican priest studying at Notre Dame, will speak to the teens about what truth is and how they can know it.

Breakout sessions will be offered on a variety of topics by presenters including Franciscan Father David Mary Engo, Father Terry Coonan, Sister Mary Vianney Gru, Deacon Mel Tardy, Sarah Hill, Sarah Joyce and others.

A concert by Frankie and the Holy Rollers, a brand new FaithFest video by Cory Heimann of Likable Art, and an interactive expo are just parts of this high-energy day.

Teens will meet Jesus in the sacrament of Penance, Eucharistic Adoration and the celebration of Mass, and spend time with Bishop Kevin C. Rhoades in a “Text the Bishop” session.

The cost is $20 and includes a T-shirt and lunch. Check-in begins at 8:30 a.m. and the event concludes at 6 p.m.

Any high school teen can register online or with their parish youth minister. Visit the Office of Youth Ministry website for more information: www.diocesefwsb.org/YM.
