Keynote speaker will be Steve Angrisano, a nationally known Catholic musician, songwriter and storyteller. Food trucks will be available for lunch and priests will be on hand to offer the sacrament of reconciliation. 

Other activities include prayer, small group discussion, skit, eucharistic procession and adoration. Father Jeff Hebert, who will become diocesan vocations director on June 15, will celebrate Mass at 5 p.m. He will also serve as chaplain for youth and campus ministry. The event concludes with the installation of the 2021-22 YAC and farewell to outgoing seniors.
