High School Youth Rally will serve as springboard for anniversary Mass

By John Shaughnessy

High school students are invited to register for the Archdiocesan High School Youth Rally on May 2 at Roncalli High School in Indianapolis.

The rally will be a springboard for youths for the 175th anniversary celebration of the archdiocese on May 3 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

“We thought this would help the youths get even more excited for the 175th anniversary celebration,” said Kay Scoville, the director of youth ministry for the archdiocese. “I hope the youths come and embrace the opportunity to celebrate with their peers and the archdiocese.”

The keynote speaker at the youth rally will be Matt Maher, a Catholic musician.

“We hope to have from 300 to 500 young people at this event,” Scoville said. “We’ve been working on this for months.”

The cost for the event is $40, which includes a concert with Maher, a T-shirt, dinner and sessions to strengthen the faith of high school students.

The deadline for registering for the youth rally is April 20. Youths can get registration forms for the rally from the youth minister of their parish, or they can register online at www.archindy.org/youth. †
