Thirty young adults from the Diocese of Victoria joined 600 hundred other Canadian university students at the annual Canadian Catholic Outreach ‘Rise Up’ Conference in Vancouver. I was privileged to celebrate the 8:30 am Mass on Thursday, December 29, 2016.
The Conference runs from December 28 through January 1, but is so much more than just a Conference. It exists to ‘motivate and inspire leaders for the renewal of the world.’ The days are full of beautiful worship of God, inspired teaching of the Faith, and exuberant (and exhausting!) community.
