Background Pix of the Youth Conference

The first night's sleep was a bit fitful, but refreshing. After breakfast, we carry all our gear for the day as the dorms are locked. Here are a few of the Ottawa delegation after the "Men's Session" in the "Glory Tent".

After the mile-long (kilometer-long?) line for lunch and the long wait for the hamburgers (which took longer than expected to cook), it was time for hanging out, playing a little touch football or just lying about.

The chapel in the background is the scene of several presentations: on youth ministry, exploring vocations and the sacrament of reconciliation (confessions), with priority given to the youth. On an average weekend, one half of the 2000 attending(approximately 1000!) celebrate the sacrament of peace.

Franciscan University's Faculty of Theology is the home base of Scott Hahn whom I have had the privilege to get to know. Supper was shared with is lovely wife Kimberley and three of their children who are still at home: Jeremiah (who took the picture), Joseph and David.
