Last Friday night, I had the opportunity to address 150 of our Spirit Day volunteers at their orientation prior to the big event on Saturday and Sunday. The majority of these volunteers were in grades 10, 11, and 12.

Here’s the official promo video for Spirit Day 2014 – the largest annual Catholic youth rally in BC.
Spirit Day is the annual event for grade 7 students of the Archdiocese of Vancouver, presented by the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry. It will be held on November 8 and 9 at the Chandos Pattison Auditorium in Surrey.
The theme for this year’s event is “God’s Building”. Each of us is God’s building with Jesus Christ as the foundation and cornerstone. At Spirit Day, we’ll be exploring how God’s spirit lives within us and how God is building us up to be strong witnesses of our faith.
Spirit Day will feature APeX Ministries as the Keynote Speakers, and the Jacob and Matthew Band leading music.
