Come join us for the 16th Annual Spirit Day!  Designed to celebrate Grade Seven youth of our Archdiocese, Spirit Day has grown tremendously since the inaugural event in February 2005.  This event helps participants encounter the love of Christ, gets them excited about receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, and awakens the Holy Spirit in young and old alike.  The day includes sessions, testimonies, games, music, skits, prayer, food and Holy Mass celebrated by Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB.

Saturday, November 9 - OR - Sunday, November 10
10 am - 6 pm (New this year)

SPIRIT DAY 2019: From Heaven


APeX Ministries

APeX is two Catholic men (Brad Farmer and Gene Monterastelli) who have made it their lives’ work since 1996 to criss-cross North America sharing the Truth and Joy of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  They have crafted a unique style (they call it “Christian Vaudeville”) that engages an audience and creates rapport through death-defying juggling, sketch comedy, and personal testimony. In other words, they are evangelists, they throw things at each other, and they are funny.


WAL is a contemporary Catholic-Christian band from Los Angeles, California comprised of music artists, songwriters and worship leaders who serve their local parishes as coordinators of youth ministry. For over 15 years, WAL has been serving the Church through God’s gift of song throughout the USA and internationally. WAL strives to have their music draw each of your hearts to a deep acceptance that we are infinitely, passionately and unconditionally loved by God.
