Virtual SHYCON Planned


Even a pandemic cannot interfere with faith and fun for our high school students throughout the diocese. 

Senior High Youth Conference, or SHYCON, held every October, attracts about 800 young people. Since large gatherings are not possible this year, the diocesan Youth Ministry Office is sponsoring a virtual SHYCON on October 25 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

The theme: “Find Us Ready, Lord!”

The diocese is encouraging students to gather as a parish faith community to participate in the virtual event – wearing masks and practicing physical distancing.

For more information or to register, contact your pastor, director of Religious Education, and Catholic High School Campus Minister.

The deadline to register is October 19.
