It is crazy how time has flown by! We are already to July, which means that summer is almost halfway over, but it also means that we have yet another group we are featuring for "Praying In Your Parish". However, July isn't featuring a parish, per say. We are featuring an event that involves many parishes, with children and young adults that receive a new look a the faith, and hopefully a conversion of heart! I had the blessing to be among them this past spring, not only to film the event but to help chaperone at it the following day as a catechist. The best part was seeing the conversions that were taking place. Teens and children who may not have wanted to go, all of a sudden overcome by the power of the Lord as he passed by in the monstrance was an especially telling part.
I am splitting up this specific month into two parts. The first part is focusing on the event itself, and what types of prayer and sacraments that were offered to the children at the event. The second part will be posted in a couple weeks, and feature the "God Squad" for this year, which has some very powerful messages from teens themselves on their own conversion experiences. I hope that you enjoy this month's "Praying In Your Parish" - On Location at the Wisconsin Catholic Youth Rally 2017!
