The Office of Youth Ministry is excited to offer a day of celebration for the young people living in the Diocese of Ogdensburg.  Our 2023 theme “We are Jesus in the World” is all about living our lives to the fullest by being Jesus to others.  It’s not always easy but when we focus on using our gifts and talents for others, we can find joy and do some really good work for the Lord!  Plan on having a really good time getting pumped up with a super presentation from Monet Souza and a bouncing concert from Catholic recording artist, Joe Melendrez.  There will also be fun games, exciting competitions, MC entertainment, and great food at the High Peaks resort.  We will wrap up this fun filled day with a closing mass offered by Most Reverend Bishop Terry LaValley.  This is an all, inclusive event and is made available at the low-ticket price of $35.00 per youth.   

The 2023 Youth Rally is open to all Middle and High School age young people. 

Please note that registration is needed for youth to attend.  

The Youth Rally will be held in the High Peaks Resort found at 2384 Saranac Ave., Lake Placid, New York from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm with closing Mass at 5:30 pm in nearby, St. Agnes Church. 

Please contact the Youth Office with any questions. 315-393-2920   Jeannie Grizzuto

Keynote Speaker: Monet Souza

Monét grew up in a Catholic home in Massachusetts with her parents and younger brother. From a young age, her parents clearly communicated Catholic truth and morality providing Monét a solid foundation in the faith. With this foundation, Monét navigated the difficult pressures and struggles of maintaining one’s faith through high school and college.   Embracing her love for Catholic strength and identity, Monet uses her gift as a public speaker and motivator to excite and invigorate young people to be more confident to live as a Catholic in today’s world.    Monet spends her time on her social media platform A Message of Hope as well as a producer at Catholic TV Network and soon to be host of her own TV series talk show.
