Diocesan Youth Convention

Save the Date!

68th Annual Diocesan Youth Convention (Leap Year Edition!)

February 28th, 29th, and March 1st, 2019

Buffalo Grand Hotel

The young Church in our Diocese will once again gather to celebrate the Holy Spirit at work within us and among us as we come together for Convention 2020! We hope that you will plan on joining us on the weekend of February 28-March 1, 2020. 

The theme for Convention 2020, Christ is Alive, is inspired by Pope Francis' recent Apostolic Exhortation Christus Vivit, which is written especially to and for young people and those who minister to them. We will spend the weekend unpacking this powerful message, and exploring what it means to worship a God who is love, receive the mercy of Christ who saves us, and go forth empowered by the Spirit who gives life. Please plan now to join us! 


The convention is a weekend conference for high school youth and their adult chaperones, which includes liturgy, reconciliation, keynote speakers, breakout sessions, award presentations & dance.  It is a powerful experience combining faith, fellowship, and fun.  Won't you consider joining us?  All of the information you need is on this site!  Happy browsing and we will see you on February 28th!

More information regarding the Convention 2020 will be released as it becomes available.
