Love My Life Youth Rally


Saturday, January 13, 2018

The Love My Life Youth Rally will be held at Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral!

This annual event is an opportunity for Catholic teens to come together to celebrate life, to connect with others from across the Diocese, and to learn more about living and promoting the pro-life culture. Mass will be held after the rally, and the youth and adults will be sent forth to participate in the March for Life.

The Love My Life Rally will feature a dynamic speaker, music, great free food, and will draw our youth to live out a culture of loving, protecting and celebrating all human life! As Catholics, we are all called to live life abundantly, and this event will inspire our youth to join with hundreds from our Diocese in witnessing to others God’s special gift of human life.

This year, youth leaders are asked to register their groups in Configio, the Diocesan Database. Please visit to register. When you enter the Configio database, you will be asked to register as a Configio user before you register for the Love My Life event. Please follow the prompts and register, rather than registering as a guest. This will help if you need to update your number as the event draws closer. Once you have entered the brief information, including the number of youth, you will land on a page that will allow you to purchase t-shirts. You may elect “No Thanks” and exit Configio. Please see below for more information on how to order t-shirts.

Participant Permission Slips

Please download the permission slips: English (PDF)  | Spanish (PDF). These permission slips should NOT be returned to the diocese, but rather be held by youth leaders in case of emergency.

Newly Designed T-Shirts

We have a newly designed long-sleeved t-shirt available. You may see a picture of the new design and order at the following link: Methods of payment are by credit card or bill the parish. If you elect to bill the parish, a code will need to be entered. You may obtain this code from your parish business office. This new step was put in place to protect parishes from unauthorized billing. Thank you for your support of the Love my Life Youth Rally.

Service Project

This year we will be doing a diaper drive as part of our event. You may wish to do a drive at your parish in advance of this event.

Parking on Halifax Mall for the March for Life

After the Rally and Mass, we will head over to Halifax Mall to join NC Right to Life and March for Life. Please download the map (PDF) for parking and dropoff points.
