At the conference, 2,000 Catholic teenagers joined together to deepen their faith and grow their relationship with Jesus. Attendees went to Mass, participated in prayer opportunities, and took part in workshops led by nationally renowned Catholic speakers.
Julia Bertussi'18 said since attending IHA's Mission Trip, she has been looking for another similar opportunity to grow in faith. Her favorite part of the Life Teen conference was eucharistic adoration, where "all 2,000 guests joined together to be in Christ's presence while listening to music that lifted all of our spirits. It was a truly life-changing experience to see so many people my age worshipping God."
Elizabeth Encke'20, a member of the Campus Ministry team at IHA, said she was hoping to take away new lessons from the conference that will help her lead others in the school to "a life following Jesus."
"My favorite part of the conference was listening to all the keynote speakers during the day then breaking up into our small group sessions at night to discuss what we took away from that session," Elizabeth said. "This really gave us time to learn more about one another and how we all incorporate faith into our life."
