BRIDGEPORT—Every year in the Diocese of Bridgeport, over two hundred high school students take part in CONVIVIO, an international conference for the youth, run by youth. CONVIVIO encourages students to grow in their relationship with the Lord by asking hard questions in order to find real answers, and then challenges them to go back to their families, parishes and schools to share their newfound or affirmed belief. It also reminds students that they are part of something greater, that they are not alone in the Christian life and that there are concrete ways to implement change in their world.
The weekend is centered around the Eucharist and includes Mass, Adoration, and the opportunity to go to the Sacrament of Reconciliation. In addition to participation in the Sacraments, nationally known speakers will be giving the keynote addresses. There will also be small group discussion, games and time for fellowship. Every year, CONVIVIO is led by local high school and college students and is open to any high school student, no matter where they are in their faith. This year, CONVIVIO will take place on March 1, 2, and 3, 2019, at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield and the theme is “To Whom Shall We Go?” The planning committee, comprised entirely of former CONVIVIO participants, has put together a weekend rooted in Truth that aims to answer to this question that is especially relevant in the lives of our teens.
Registration is now open at www.convivio‐us.org!
