The Alaska Catholic Youth Conference 2019: The Joy of Our Faith
On Facebook and Twitter, Pope Francis writes, “A Christian is never bored or sad. Rather, the one who loves Christ is full of joy and radiates joy.” Today’s world often does not reflect such joy. People are in dire need of it. It is up to modern day disciples to strive for it in our own lives and in-turn, pour it out to others through our actions and words.
The Alaska Catholic Youth Conference (ACYC) is a gathering of Alaskan teens, young adults, parents, pastoral administrators, and parish staff members. It is an excellent opportunity for youth to gather and celebrate their Catholic faith.
The conference will feature both Alaskan and national Catholic musicians and speakers who will help teens live as missionary disciples in their communities, whether that be rural or urban. The week will include Eucharistic liturgies, reconciliation, workshops, a concert, and yes, fun!
Youth and adults that journey to ACYC will return to their home parishes with renewed faith and a strengthened desire to live as God’s disciples in their churches and communities.
