More than 700 young people from across North America will gather at Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke this weekend for a “Love Revolution” led by the youth arm of Couples for Christ.

Participants, ranging in age from 12 to 21, will travel from Toronto, Saskatoon, Florida, and even the U.S. Virgin Islands to take part in the event. More than 60 youth will attend from Montreal, the host chapter.

“The point of the conference is to provide the youth with a fun environment to experience God in a different way,” organizer Ellish Maigue-Talacca told VMO.

Maigue -Talacca, co-head of the ENAC Secretariat committee, said the July 17-19 event emphasizes active participation in faith.

“This is not just a ‘sit down and listen’ type of conference. It invites them to explore their talents and pray, to be deliberate in stirring a revolution within their minds, hearts and hands,” she said.

CFC-youth, which exists in 120 countries, is part of the Couples for Christ (CFC) Global Mission Foundation, a Catholic charismatic lay movement officially recognized by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council of the Laity. The mission is to form youth to be witnesses of God’s love in the world by building the Church of the home and the Church of the poor.

Under the “Love Revolution” theme, the two days will include pastoral sessions, sports comeptitions, creative work - and even an American Ninja Warrior contest. Along with praise and worship, and daily Mass, there will be lots of music.

“Our community is very big on music,” Maigue-Talacca said. “This will be a successful conference if I am able to see in the youth a Love Revolution.”

And just what is a “Love Revolution?”

“A revolutionary has a cause to march and fight for. Sometimes we don’t think, we obey and follow. But when it comes to our Catholic faith, we really need to take the time to understand what we are fighting for. And the answer to that question is a “who”: it is Christ. He is not just a cause. He is someone we encounter every day.”
