“This experience has changed me immensely. I now understand the importance of Christ in my life. The whole experience just makes me want to be a better person and revolve everything around the glory of God.”

“There were children, seniors, religious and felons, all races, converts and cradle Catholics, and maybe even a few non-Catholics, people from every walk of life…all worshipping God together for two days. It doesn’t get any better than that on earth.”
