Young adults of the Diocese of Allentown will participate in a one-of-a-kind event in February to ask the big questions about joy, peace, hope and salvation.
Thursday, Feb. 4 through Sunday, Feb. 7, 2021, people will gather across the country in living rooms, campus centers and parishes for a live broadcast event encountering the heart of the Gospel.
“Seek21,” the annual conference of FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students), will be held virtually this time.
The Diocese of Allentown will participate in “Seek21” through its Catholic campus ministry at Lehigh University, Bethlehem; Kutztown University; and Lafayette College, Easton. Several young adult groups in the Diocese will also share the experience in parish halls and living rooms. (If restrictions do not allow in-person gatherings, they will participate on social media.)
The Diocese will also invite the “Seek21” participants to an evening of Adoration and Confession Saturday, Feb. 6 at the Cathedral of St. Catharine of Siena, Allentown.
‘“Seek’ reinvigorated my desire to continue walking the path of discipleship,” said Bobby Rienzo, parishioner of St. John the Baptist Parish, Pottsville, about his experience with past “Seek” conferences.
“I’m looking forward to the virtual conference this year. I’ve seen a lot of success in our parish – more than I would have anticipated – with our virtual disciple-making small groups. When people are comfortable in their own homes, they are open to the transformative power of the Holy Spirit.”
