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.

Participant Permission Slips

Please download the permission slips: English (Word) | Spanish (Word). They are in Word so that youth leaders can add their personal information. 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. Check back later for instructions on how to order.
