What can I expect at the Convention?

The Youth Convention is a day of fun and faith sharing for high school students around the diocese. With the energy of vibrant keynote speakers, the celebration of Mass with the Bishop, workshops on various faith-related topics, and an opportunity to meet and mingle with youth from all over the Diocese of Fall River, the convention provides an enjoyable opportunity for faith development!

What can I expect from the Middle School Rallies?

The middle school rallies are abridged versions of the high school convention. The rallies open and close with prayer and feature Jesse Manibusan, who leads the students through prayerful and dynamic song and reflection.  

I'd like to know more about 

Jesse Manibusan... is a composer, singer/songwriter, storyteller, humorist, catechist, evangelizer and encourager. Working with any and every age group, Jesse has that knack to build instant rapport, connect to his audience, and create life-giving memories that help deepen faith and cultivate the joy that inspires service, sacrifice and the celebration of life.

Jesse earned an MA in Multicultural Ministries from the Franciscan School of Theology, Berkeley, CA, and gives concerts, workshops, parish missions, and retreats. Jesse’s music is published by Oregon Catholic Press and Spirit & Song (a division of OCP). In 2014, Jesse received the National Catholic Youth Award, for Presenter/Artist Category by the National Federation for Catholic Youth Ministries, INC.

Jesse's is always working on new and exciting projects and would love to hear from you. So please make sure to send him a message on this site.

Who plans the Youth Convention?

Each year, the graduates of the Office of Faith Formation's Christian Leadership Institute assist in planning the annual convention. They also assist with the Middle School Rallies. Thus, the 2019 Annual Diocesan Youth Convention will be hosted and planned by the 2018 CLI Graduates. 

What is the cost of the Youth Convention?

$20 per person, no cost for chaperones
