CYC 2015: ‘Behold … you are loved – chosen – sent’

the Inland Register

(From the January 15, 2015 edition of the Inland Register)

The CYC 2015 Diocesan Planning Committee is proud to announce the opening of registrations for this year’s Catholic Youth Celebration, March 20-22, 2015 at Gonzaga Preparatory School in Spokane.

This year’s theme is “BEHOLD… you are loved – chosen – sent.” What we behold is what we will be held by; thus, behold the Lamb of God. High school youth will behold the Christ as we celebrate the sacraments and our faith.

This high-energy weekend features several great speakers and musicians:

Father Jorge Zarraga is a dynamic, life-giving priest from the Archdiocese of Tijuana, Mexico. “Padre Jorge” is a radio and television host for his community, the Missionaries of Jesus and Mary. This former emergency room doctor provides care for the soul through dynamic storytelling, and inspirational teaching.

Thousands of youth have laughed, prayed, and journeyed with Casey Ross in youth ministry the last two decades. A veteran of Cultivation Ministries, a former campus minister and parish youth minister, a husband and father of four, he now serves as the Assistant Director of Camp Services for the Archdiocese of Seattle.

Music will be provided by Daniel Obberreuter and his band “The Thirsting.” The Thirsting offers cutting edge Catholic music that speaks to today’s generation. In 2008 they released their first album, Companions of the Lamb, and in 2011 their highly anticipated sophomore album Universal Youth was produced. The band was originally founded in order to engage the culture with a universal message of true freedom through an encounter with Christ. The Thirsting provided music for last year’s CYC gathering.
