In partnership with NET Ministries, the Office for Youth Evangelization and Discipleship is happy to present Awake, a Jr. High youth rally. Awake seeks to accompany 6-8th graders through an event that will provide opportunities for fellowship, worship, and encounter. The event is open and accessible to any 6-8th grader and will feature a meal, entertainment, music, games, small group conversation, a keynote testimony, Eucharistic adoration, and the opportunity for the youth to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.


Students coming with a group leader from an Archdiocesan organization (e.g. parish or school) can qualify for financial aid made available through the generosity of benefactors who contributed to the Catholic Ministries Appeal (CMA). Financial aid can only be applied for by a group leader. Financial aid can only be applied for YOUTH spots. Group leaders may apply for up to 12 registration fee remission scholarships for the March 2, 2019 Awake Jr. High Rally. There are a limited number of scholarships available for this youth rally. Scholarships will be awarded on a first come, first serve basis. Decisions re: scholarships will be made by Monday, Feb. 25, 2019 and group leaders will be notified at that point.
