Two years have flown by so fast. And now, on behalf of the 2018 Convo Committee, I would like to say how excited we are that Convo is here again!
Registration is now open for Convo 2018! This year, the Central Diocese has prepared a fantastic theme: “Anointed Lifeguard: You Have Been Chosen, Anointed, Empowered, and Blessed to Do Jesus’ Work.”
Convo will be hosted at The University of Scranton, July 23-27, 2018. We have great speakers lined up, on-site and off-site activities, a community service project to benefit homeless teens, Holy Mass at St. Stanislaus Cathedral, a dance, and an excursion to Kalahari Water Park! All we need is YOU to be there to help US enjoy this amazing week of sharing faith, friends, and fun.
If you have never been to a PNCC youth convocation, let me assure you that you will be in for a treat. Participants are ages 12-20. Chaperones and guests are 21+. And we spend a week together expressing our faith through worship, music, and creative activities. Make 2018 the year YOU decide to go!
Raffle tickets to win two Visa Gift Cards have been mailed to every parish. Winners will be drawn during the Convo week. This raffle is integral to defraying the cost of the Convo, we encourage you to participate and to encourage your fellow parishioners to buy a ticket or three. We ask that all applications, raffle ticket stubs and money (checks only, made out to Convo 2018 Committee) be sent in no later than July 1, 2018.
We cannot wait to see our old friends and look forward to welcoming many new ones!
President, 2018 Convo Committee
The Central Diocese of the Polish National Catholic Church is proud to announce that Convo 2018 will be held on the campus of The University of Scranton in Scranton, PA, July 23 through July 27, 2018.
YES! It’s time to get ready for the next P.N.C.C. National Youth Convocation. Clear your schedule, reserve the last week of July 2018, and get ready for the absolutely best week of the year.
We have a great committee of hard-working youth who are leading all planning efforts:
President, Maddie Hughes; Vice President, Jake Gerardi; 2nd Vice president for Finance, Elizabeth Pfohl; Secretary, Rebecca Kotula; Treasurer, Nicholas Pfohl; Board Members, Timmy Stankowski, Jacob Stankowski, Victoria Konicki, Halle Maciag, Michael Cyman, Alex Mludzik, Zuzanna Pociecha, and Matt Kotula. There are also many other UYA members who are participating in many capacities alongside their committee.
President Maddie Hughes is putting out an open invitation to any young person in the Central Diocese to feel welcome in joining in the preparations of this fantastic event:
For kids interested in attending, you won’t regret it if you do. I have gone to three Convos so far. At each one, I have learned so much about our Church and have also made some of the best friends in the world. Now, I can say I have friends in all different states and not just from my own parish. You may not know what it’s all about, it’s a little different each time, but don’t worry. COME ANYWAY! This is an opportunity for kids young and old… even adults are welcome.
If you feel this is the year you want to be part of a P.N.C.C. National Youth Convocation, we would love your personal support as well as the support of your parishes and seniorates. Reach out to us and ask how you can help; there will be many types of opportunities, for example; chaperoning or underwriting portions of entertainment and supplies. Something big or something small, all are equally important and are needed. You are needed.
