Youth Gather for Annual Diocesan Conference

DYC 2016: About 150 youth and adults gathered March 4-6 at the Gateway Center in Collinsville, Ill., to consider the theme: “Here to Serve: God’s Love in Action.” They came from as far as Mt. Carmel and Hamilton County and as near as St. Teresa in Belleville.

Keynote speaker and theology teacher at St. Louis University High School, Danielle Harrison takes her topic to the audience. She engaged youth in her keynote presentation that compared movies to the parables in the Bible, seeing the world differently after leaving the theatre, listening to the Word of God than when we began.

Bishop Edward K. Braxton met with young people to answer their questions and let them know what he had been doing before celebrating Sunday liturgy with them.
