One Bread, One Cup Youth Liturgical Conference: Word, Sacrament, Mission
SUMMER 2018 | Saint Meinrad, IN
Possible Dates: Thursday, June 21 - Monday, June 25 OR Friday, July 6 - Tuesday, July 10, 2018
(We will fly out of Richmond the morning BEFORE either date and return late evening the last date of conference) 

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 (Elisa Akins, Shannon Birmingham, Ian Courter, Mary Crawford, Jacob Franco and Brandon Velasco) participated last summer in the One Bread, One Cup Youth Liturgical Conference from June 26 - June 31 on the campus of Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology in St. Meinrad, IN. They will learn 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, young adult parishioners Chad Baron and Ellen Orie are part of the summer college interns that are a vital part of leading and serving this conference alongside the Benedictine monks and adult directors.
