About

Theme


This year the theme of the Youth Rally is “BE”. Mary rejoiced upon the news that she would be the Mother of God, and so do we rejoice as we grow to understand and celebrate the ways in which we are called as well to BE in the world.  The Angel Gabriel told Mary, “Do not be afraid…you have found favour with God.” (Luke 1:30)  So too should we live without fear or anxiety, for we are chosen and sent for a purpose.
