Dates for Generation Life: Love Thy Neighbor
Proclaiming the Gospel of Life
Begins at Home
January 27-30, 2021
Registration will open on this site at 10:00am CST on Thursday, October 8th, 2020 and will close at 4:00pm CST on Thursday, November 12th. We are able to serve 1600 participants at this time. If that number is reached, we will reach out to those on the waiting list with information on next steps.
Individual registrations are to be completed by Friday, December 4th. Registrations completed by this day are guaranteed to receive their shirt size of choice. Any registrations completed after December 4th will still receive a shirt, but we cannot guarantee a size.
Per Archdiocesan policy, each group must have one chaperone for every ten teens. We recognize that more adults may be needed for transportation so for this year only have lifted maximum chaperone regulations.
*All Chaperones must be 21 or older and in compliance with Archdiocesan Youth Ministry Policies.
On Wednesday, January 27th, we hope to gather from 7:00-9:00pm at launch sites throughout the Archdiocese. Groups will gather for an evening of programming focused on launching teens into the weekend ahead.
On Saturday, January 30th, we hope to gather in the afternoon, tentatively 2:00-5:00pm outdoors on a football field. We hope to come together as a community for a prayerful rally including a guest speaker, Eucharistic Adoration, and the opportunity for praise and worship.
Thursday and Friday are free for groups to gather in-person or virtual in a time-frame and location that works best for them if they so desire (please consult your pastor and local guidelines for gathering restrictions). Resources will be provided to each group leader to assist in planning a time of programming.
Yes. Every thing we do will be in line with both Archdiocesan and health department guidelines. Times and locations may need to shift in order to guarantee proper protocols are followed.
For the rally on Saturday, we have laid out the following plans:
Plan A: Every participant that registers will attend the rally in person – this location may be outdoors to accommodate all socially distanced
Plan B: If venues can only hold a small percentage, we will host two sessions of the rally
Plan C: If venues can only hold a small percentage, we will get as many in as possible, and live stream the rally back to the launch sites – this is when registration timing matters, the first to register will be given first option of attending in person
Plan D: If venues are not allowing anyone, we will live stream the rally to everyone at the launch sites
Plan E: If everyone is sheltered at home like this past spring, we will live stream to everyone at their homes
Regardless of the current restrictions at the time of Generation Life: Love Thy Neighbor, programming materials and the giveaway item will still be given to all participants who are registered.
