“Walk This Way” will be the theme for the Diocesan Youth Convention to be held Nov. 17-19 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Rochester.
The event will feature keynoter Bob Perron, known nationally as the “Stooge 4 Christ” because he bears a strong resemblance to Curly of The Three Stooges.
Other highlights will be music by Soul Purpose; a series of workshops for teens as well as parents and youth-ministry leaders; cultural-exchange dinners hosted by urban parishes around Rochester; a reconciliation service with faith-sharing; and a Saturday-night “fun for all” featuring games, dancing, karaoke, movies, snacks and other activities.
The convention was begun in 1994 and regularly attracts hundreds of participants from all over the Diocese of Rochester. It is open to all high-schoolers.
