Youth Track.

The conference will include general sessions and break-out sessions relevant to issues and concerns pertinent to youth. Youth (PreK-12) are encouraged to participate in the conference and the Bell Institute. Parent consent waivers must accompany each youth registration. At least one chaperone (aged 25 years or older) is required for every eight (8) youth.  Boys and girls must have separate hotel rooms. Adults cannot share a hotel room with youth (unless the adult is the parent of the youth). 

Young Adults.

Sessions and social activities have been planned especially for young adults. Join other young adults to network and share experiences, successes, and challenges of life and ministry. 

Creative Sharing.

The explosion of the multiple talents of conference participants has challenged conference planners to provide ways to better facilitate “sharing” opportunities. Creative Sharing will be Friday, July 17. Parishes/dioceses are encouraged to combine and form joint presentations. For instance, mass choirs comprised of multiple parishes will have 9-minute presentation opportunities, while singular parish presentations will have 3-minute opportunities. Presentation guidelines will be available later.
