Letters From a Young Catholic

My reflections as a Catholic young adult passionate about the Faith, seeking to grow in knowledge and understanding of God and discerning the will of the Lord in my life.

Off to Rise-Up

I'm going to be heading out first thing tomorrow morning to drive down to the city for the Rise-Up conference being put on by Catholic Christian Outreach.

From the description of the conference:
The conference will feature 4 nights in a 5 star hotel, dynamic speakers, daily Eucharist, practical workshops, and an amazing New Year's Eve Banquet and Bash!

Sounds good to me.

Tomorrow night I'll get to listen to the key note speaker, George Weigel. He's the author of Pope John Paul II's biography "Witness to Hope" and a book called "Letters to a Young Catholic," along with many other books. Yes, the title of my blog is shamelessly inspired by the second book.

Another speaker for the conference is Fr. Tom Rosica, C.S.B., Fr. Rosica is the former CEO and National Director of World Youth Day 2002. He is also in charge of "Salt and Light" which is a Catholic tv station in Canada.

Anyways, there will be amazing speakers and amazing company. It should be good fun and hopefully spiritually fruitful as well.

I will be gone from tomorrow until January first, which means I won't be blogging for a while here. I'll take good notes though and I'll report back to you when I get back from the conference next week about everything I learnt. In other words, keep your eyes peeled next week for a whole bunch of posts all at once.
