On this warm weekend, I just wanted to thank you for those who prayed for the success of the incredible youth conference that took place at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester. There were many many young people who excitedly gave their hearts to Jesus. It was a wonderful event. At the closing mass, there were somewhere between 50-100 young men and women who came forward in front of all their peers and said they are considering a call to either priesthood or consecrated life. It was a beautiful testimony to the vitality in the Church. Blessed be God who is at work in the hearts of each one of us and in a particular way the hearts of our young people this weekend. God be praised.
