The homeschool group attending KCYC was all girls this year! They loved Matt the emcee (who was a homeschool grad with a cool courtship story), and they felt encouraged by Mike Gormely's message about staying near Christ when we are suffering. There were separate s*x talks for the girls and guys, and our pro-life director had great hand-outs during her workshop on abortion and contraception myths.
The music was phenomenal; adoration was amazing; and the 750 teens all attended confession and mass with Bishop Finn.
Saturday night's painting of Christ's face was created in front of the audience (wow!) during a praise & worship song "I Can Only Imagine." The words felt alive:
"I can only imagine what my eyes will see, when Your Face is before me."
Next year, KC will host the National Catholic Youth Conference on Nov. 19-21. See you then!!
