City of Saints 2019

The City of Saints teen conference offered an authentic and realistic perspective on how to live out our catholic faith. The speakers provided hope and encouragement to the reality that we are all necessary members of the church. They all emphasized that by praying and taking part in the sacraments on a regular basis, we can achieve holiness in the ordinary of our daily lives. This conference was also a reminder to the teens and all adults present that, “A saint is a sinner who keeps trying,” (St. Josemaria Escriva) and that we shall never give up, because God has never given up on us. As Salesian Family we animated two booths this year. One booth was to sell resources, that included; Shirts, stickers, water bottles, caps, and a variety of accessories. The second booth was an interactive mural painting of Mary Help of Christians. Participants got to the chance to come and paint a square, or more, to complete the painting. Only half would be completed on purpose because the second half will be completed at Rock Out Youth Poverty, happening next year. Many of the participants enjoyed this activity and are considering doing something like this with their youth group, some are interested in attending Rock Out Youth Poverty just to see the finished mural. Overall it was a succesfull weekend, interacting with participants, hearing confession, thanks to our Vocation director Fr. John Roche, SDB, and being present among the young. We look forward to next years City of Saints!
