LA Religious Ed Congress Youth Day
When: February 23, 2017 10 am & 2 pm
Where: Anaheim Convention Center - Website
Youth Day is held annually on the Thursday of the Religious Education Congress weekend. It is a day just for youth from many different backgrounds from throughout the Archdiocese – and beyond – to participate in a Rally, Liturgy and Workshops focused just for them. Our Theme this year is "What Are You Waiting For?" The readings for Youth Day 2017 are about conversion, a change of heart. That change of heart is conveyed in each of the readings. The first reading from Sirach tells us to not delay, but rather turn to Jesus before it is too late. The Gospel from Mark gives us a look at what to expect if we hesitate or put off turning to the Lord, or if we lead others astray. He speaks of an unquenchable fire where suffering never ends. So why wait to convert and change our ways? The time is now! This year’s theme is a question: “What are you waiting for?
