What is City of Saints Teen Conference?
City of Saints is a Catholic teen conference hosted by Archbishop Jose Gomez and the Youth Ministry Division in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. This event is a wonderful and local opportunity for young people to deepen their relationship with Jesus. The conference will feature dynamic speakers, liturgical experiences, music, and more, set in an atmosphere where teens can learn about and experience the Eucharist and the beauty of the Catholic faith with its rich symbols and traditions. The theme “City of Saints” reminds us that we live in a city named after saints, not only Los Angeles, (named for Our Lady, of course) but also Santa Monica, San Pedro, San Fernando, Santa Barbara, etc. We remember that all teens are called to be saints in our cities. This conference will help these young people express this sainthood in their everyday lives.
- Deepen their relationship with Jesus
- Learn more about their Catholic faith
- Discover what it means to be Saints in their own cities
- Become closer as a parish group and meet other teen Catholics from around the Archdiocese of Los Angeles
It is the goal of the City of Saints teen conference to provide an opportunity for young people to deepen their relationship with Jesus. Pope Francis reminds us that “God is not afraid of new things! That is why he is continually surprising us, opening our hearts and guiding us in unexpected ways.” Many of the cities across the Archdiocese of Los Angeles are named for saints, and all teens are called to be saints in the city in which they live. City of Saints teen conference will help young people express this sainthood in their everyday lives.
