As part of their tradition, the St. Ann High School Ministry teens spent their last night in Laredo with XLT, a praise and worship evening at St. Patrick Church.

Youth from around our diocese joined, as the night started off with Eucharistic adoration, followed by a performance from Catholic singer Dave Moore. His harmonious vocals made for a beautiful and prayerful atmosphere, as everyone sang along in unison.

The St. Ann High School Mission from Coppell, Texas is currently in Laredo as part of their Mission Laredo 2016. This amazing group of teens volunteer their time each year to beautify and rebuild missions and surrounding houses in our diocese.

This is the 7th consecutive year that we have had the honor of hosting them as they bring a positive attitude and hard work to life through their various undertakings. Over 140 high school students are part of the 2016 Mission Laredo.

World Youth Day 2016 will be celebrated in Krakow, Poland from July 25-31. Millions of young Catholics eagerly await this special event, which only happens every three years, and they prepare for their pilgrimage.

39 young men and women from around the Diocese of Laredo will be embarking on this journey together. Bishop James Tamayo celebrated Mass for the pilgrims and their chaperones, as they praised God for this great opportunity to grow in their faith.
