More than 800 high school-aged teens, adult leaders and volunteers spent eight hours of their Sunday getting excited about and experiencing the Catholic faith with their peers.
During the eight-hour event called RALLY at Bishop O’Connell High School in Alexandria Oct. 21, the teens attended workshops on topics relevant to their demographic, including “God and Science: Where Does the Evidence Lead?”, “When a Friend Says ‘I’m Pregnant,’” “Digital Loneliness: How Social Media is Hijacking Our Lives,” and many more.
During his homily, Bishop Burbidge told the teens representing nearly 50 parishes that this weekend’s Gospel highlights three instructions for us: surrender, suffer and serve.
