“God’s Love is truly great! God’s Love is meant for all! 

Let us discover the Love of God in each other!”


The Youth office is excited to bring young people together for a celebratory day filled with “God’s All Encompassing Love”.  The theme of “Under The Big Top” sets the tone for a carnival style event with fun games, entertainment, great food, a wonderful resort location, a dynamic speaker and 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 $30.00 per youth through the generous support of the Bishop Fund Appeal and Donor organizations.  

The Youth Rally will be held in the High Peaks Resort located at, 2384 Saranac Ave., Lake Placid, New York from 10am to 5pm with closing Mass at 4pm. 

This year our Keynote speaker will be, Doug Tooke.  Doug Tooke is a dynamic and energetic speaker with more than 20 years in Ministry.  Utilizing cinematic storytelling, Doug’s presentations inspire and motivate people to seek a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Also appearing will be the Gratto Fellows Circus Performers showcasing their interactive juggling, unicycling, rope walking, and other feats of daring, bravery and comedic entertainment.

You can also try your skill or luck at one of the Carnival Game tables and we will have great music all day long!
