What is Youth Day?Youth Day is held annually on the Thursday of the Religious Education Congress weekend. It is a day just for youth from many different backgrounds from throughout the Archdiocese and beyond to participate in a Rally, Liturgy and Workshops focused just for them.
Who May Attend?
Youth Day is designed for all students from public and Catholic schools, grades 9 through 12. NOTE: Students below the 9th grade are not allowed to participate in this event and will be refused admission. One Adult Chaperone is required for each group of 10 students (maximum), all attending the same workshop. We recommend that you add one extra Chaperone name to your first registration.
What Does Youth Day Cost?
Youth Day is separate registration and fee from the adult Congress days. The registration fee for Youth Day 2016 is $35 ($30 by December 8, 2015 deadline).
Youth Day 2016 Schedule
New this year, Youth Day 2016 adds a second workshop period. Each group chooses either morning Arena events (Track 1) or afternoon Arena events (Track 2) -- so everyone gets to see the Arena speaker -- and selects two workshops from the 14 Youth Day speakers.
