22nd Annual Diocesan Youth Conference
This weekend is filled with adventure, dynamic talks, workshops, games, adoration, praise and worship, and an evening celebration showcasing artists from across our diocese. It is an opportunity to reunite with old friends and meet new ones.
In his address to young people at World Youth Day 2016, Pope Francis said:
Precisely in this world at war, we need brotherhood, we need closeness, and we need friendship. And this is the sign of hope: when there is brotherhood.
Face2Face Ministries is returning to our Diocese, and we welcome our keynote speaker, Clay Imoo who will help us unpack what it means to truly look out for one another as brothers and sisters in Christ!
If you are interested in registering a large group, such as a class or youth group, please email Eunice Joyce, our Diocesan youth coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Youth & Young Adult Office is part of the ministry of the OEC (Office of Evangelization & Catechesis). We work to support youth and young adults across Northern BC. The young people of this diocese are not the Church of the future, but have a dynamic role to play now. Our goal is to form intentional disciples of Jesus Christ or as Pope Francis says, ‘Missionary Disciples’.

Thirty-five youth attended the second IGNITE camp this past August at Camp Morice.
IGNITE is a week long camp for teens (going into grade 9 through graduating grade 12) who are serious about growing in holiness. It is an incredible week with excellent talks, amazing people, daily Mass, large group activities, reconciliation, adoration, praise and worship, and so much more!Teens grow in their knowledge of Christ and His Church and are empowered to go forward striving to be a modern-day saint.
This year, we saw the IGNITE participants double from last summer. We look forward hosting this camp next summer at Camp Morice. IGNITE BC is put on by Facetoface Ministries from Saskatoon, SK.
