VEN Youth Ave Maria 1

Bishop Frank J. Dewane is seen with more than 400 youth from across Florida following a Mass for the Ave Maria Youth Conference July 10, 2022, in Ave Maria.

AVE MARIA  |  Youth from across the southeastern United States spent July 8 to 10, 2022, listening to dynamic talks, hearing moving music, praying, participating in Eucharistic Adoration, going to confession, attending daily Mass, and making new friends.

With a theme of “Fearless,” the goal of the 14 annualAve Maria University Youth Conference was to allow high school-aged youth to come to know God in a more personal way as well as to learn how to touch the lives of others through their own life. Many young men and women from throughout the Diocese of Venice participated in the Conference and they were joined by youth from each part of Florida and beyond.
