Join young adults throughout the diocese for the 2nd-annual young adult summer festival on Friday, July 26 through Saturday, July 27, 2024! Taken from last year’s theme, based on World Youth Day’s theme – “Mary AROSE and went in haste” – the ARISE Young Adult Summer Festival tradition has begun! This event includes inspiring talks and speakers, discussion and community-building with other young adults, Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, food and fellowship, and s’mores next to a bonfire under the stars. Confession will be available during Adoration both nights – come experience God’s STEADFAST LOVE for you! All young adults across the diocese are welcome to join together at St. Robert in Cortland to celebrate their faith during this special weekend!
