Welcome to the Diocese of Laredo's Youth Ministry website! Whether you are looking for a youth group to join or would like more information about what is happening in youth ministry today, we are glad you are here!
Diocese of Laredo Middle and High School Youth Conference
Why participate? Pope Francis challenges all of us to become missionary disciples who are not afraid to witness the faith. We believe that a joint witness of thousands of young people and their prayers will indeed help young people to see themselves as witnesses of Christ and members of a young Church. The Middle School Youth Conference caters to all 6th to 9th grade students from parish religious education programs and Catholic schools, together with their teachers, catechists, youth ministers, parents, chaperones, and pastors are invited. An unforgettable field trip for Catholic middle schools and parish based programs and groups. Please see the poster below for our upcoming High School Youth Conference for teens from 9th grade to 12th grade.
IN A DISTINCTLY CATHOLIC SETTING, THE DIOCESE OF LAREDO INVITES PARTICIPANTS TO ENCOUNTER CHRIST, EXPERIENCE CHURCH, AND BE EMPOWERED FOR DISCIPLESHIP.
Every year, Catholic young people from our Diocese come with their chaperones—youth ministers, campus ministers, parents, catechists, priests, come together to pray, learn, and grow in their faith. In addition to opportunities to receive the sacraments of the Eucharist and penance, DLYC participants attend talk sessions on topics relevant to living as a disciple of Christ in today's world, visit with organizations that provide resources and other support to youth and youth ministry, spend time in personal and communal prayer, and engage in service to others.
