For this conference, the Office of Evangelization is seeking young adults who are ministries leaders in their Catholic communities.
Why should you go?
The author of the Spiritual Exercises and former soldier, St. Ignatius, challenges us to remember that each person is called to put on Christ. Man and woman can embody Christ by first looking at themselves and how they can seek holiness in the ordinary. The conference will challenge young adults to embody who Christ as services members and in the faith community.
So often the Catholic faith seems to conflict with military culture; many traditions remain the same while others constantly change. Let this weekend be a time to consider how God is calling each person to be an authentic witness to the Gospel.
