- Day-of Events
For 15 years, The FEST has been a regional summer destination for thousands of high school students. Each year the mission of the one-day event is to inspire the next generation of Catholic leaders to grow stronger in their relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer and witness.
All youth and young adults are invited to join us at our annual FEST Youth Rally! This year, we are excited to welcome Fr. Mike Schmitz (Chaplain, Newman Campus Ministry at University of Minnesota, Duluth) for our first ever OUTDOOR Holy Hour and Eucharistic Procession. If you’ve never experienced Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, or are just looking forward to praying with hundreds of your brothers and sisters in Christ, this is an hour especially for you. You are our Church. Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is our Church. Come experience our Church together as one this year at the FEST Youth Rally.
To attend our Youth Rally, All you have to do is Show Up! No Tickets or Registration Times are needed this year! The Youth Rally will happen at 3:30pm in the CPL Courtyard (Just outside the Field House in “Vocation Village”)
The Rally and The FEST is a great way to refocus your teens on Christ at the end of the summer and prepare them for the start of the school year. After the Rally enjoy Steven Curtis Chapman at 4:00 p.m. and MercyMe at 5:45 p.m. on the main stage and then celebrate Sunday Mass with thousands of Catholics as the day comes to a close.
Please feel free to contact The FEST office with questions.
