Location: Mount Mercy University, Cedar Rapids
The Archdiocese of Dubuque and Diocese of Davenport are co-sponsoring a middle school (grades 6-8) conference on Sunday, March 26. The Iowa Catholic Youth Conference is the first of its kind. It is a collaborative effort to get middle school youth excited and on fire for their faith.
This is a wonderful opportunity to get our parish youth excited about their faith. YOU matter, YOU belong, YOU are loved! The featured speaker/musician will be NCYC 2021 artist Dana Catherine. She will inspire young people from Eastern Iowa with her amazing message and song.
