Youth conference draws hundreds to Brookings

The annual diocesan youth conference welcomed 1,700 participants from across the diocese for a day of music, dynamic speakers, prayer and Mass with Bishop Paul J. Swain. Jason Evert, an internationally renowned speaker, captivated participants with stories of the saints and what authentic relationship truly is. Nic Davidson also had participants laughing out loud as he revealed the beauty and power of the Mass. This led directly into Holy Mass with Bishop Swain which was a highlight of the day.
