John Paul II was arguably the best Youth Minister in the 2,000 year history of the Church.
The Holy Father established World Youth Day as an International event where young people could encounter the Lord in powerful ways. Literally millions of Catholic youth have experienced conversions, deepened their faith, and discovered their vocation at World Youth Day.
Every year, the Ave Maria Youth Conference helps Catholic teens and youth ministers to share in the graces of World Youth Day. Uniting ourselves with the universal Church, each year we base the theme of our youth conference on the annual World Youth Day scripture quote.
World Youth Day 2011 quote: “Rooted and built on Jesus Christ, firm in the faith” (Col 2:6-7).
Ave Maria Youth Conference 2011 theme: Built to Last!
Please join us in praying for the young people who will attend this year’s youth conference. We hope to unite teens and youth ministers with the blessings and graces of the universal Mystical Body of Christ.
