Amen! for the High Schoolers
Current high school students, eighth grade confirmands, and parents: Please consider Amen 2008, the Higher Things youth conference in Saint Louis running from July 1-4.
Since Amen 2008 is in St. Louis, our travel expenses will be minimal and since it’s close, there will be time for sightseeing either before or after. It might even work as the beginning or the end of a family vacation. If you stay through the Fourth, St. Louis has spectacular Independence Day fireworks down on the river front.
If baseball is your thing, the Cardinals will be home from the end of June through the beginning of July — before and after Amen 2008. The Mets are in town from 30 June through 3 July and the Cubs visit from the Fourth through the Sixth (of course, we should probably order baseball tickets now, too!).
Registration is open and filling rapidly. We hope (and need) to have ours submitted this month in order to guarantee a spot. Two years ago, we had to be put on a waiting list and would rather not cut things so closely this time. The registration cost is $325 and we’ll do all the fund raising we can in order to defray costs. However, we still need to have a $100 per person deposit from each youth when we send in our group registration.
For more information, please access the Amen 2008 FAQ or view the informational flier.
