One Bread, One Cup Youth Liturgical Conference: Word, Sacrament, Mission
SUMMER 2017 | Saint Meinrad, IN
Dates: Monday, June 26 - Friday, June 30, 2017 (We fly out of Richmond on Sunday morning, June 25 and return late Friday evening, June 30)
Each summer, Saint Meinrad hosts several "One Bread, One Cup" gatherings. At these five day liturgical leadership conferences, youth and adults discover the Catholic Church's treasures of Word, Sacrament and Mission and enjoy opportunities for fellowship and fun (team building, outdoor recreation, variety show and dance). Participants come to appreciate the Benedictine balance of prayer, work and recreation. More information can be found at the OBOC web site.
Redeemer Youth (Bridgette, Katelyn, Mason and Mary) participated this summer in the One Bread, One Cup Youth Liturgical Conference from June 26-30 on the campus of Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology in St. Meinrad, IN. They learned about their Catholic faith through sessions of catechesis, liturgical and spiritual formation, and participation in liturgies all done while having fun in their small group activities.
Also, Kathryn Anderson and Chad Baron were part of the group of 20 summer college interns that are a vital part of leading and serving this conference along side the Benedictine monks and adult directors.
