Welcome to YouCon: Rise!

A Catholic High School Teen Conference To Fuel The Soul.

August 5-6, 2022
St. Greg's Parish
Williamsville, NY 14221

We're in the midst of a time where our souls are yearning for more. The weight of Covid, scandal, societal pressures, and the race of life can have us feeling spiritually dry

YouCon is here to bring life into this dryness, to let the Lord into the desert of our life and pour out like rain. We hear his call to Rise and want to answer with a resounding "yes"! 

We're excited to host our first youth conference. We will be headlined by Mark Hart, The Bible Geek / Executive VP for Life Teen. This experience will be packed with live music, prayerful encounters, engaging talks, plus more!

The Call


Mark Hart is recognized broadly as The Bible Geek and as the Chief Innovation Officer at Life Teen International.


His fun and bold presentations will break open the call to a greater relationship to God and leave you wanting more.
