This year’s opening mass, celebrated by Bishop Luis Zarama, is the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The choir for the opening mass is from Transfiguration Catholic Church under the direction of Rod Voss.
Fr. Hepburn and Fr. Fabre will lead this year’s Healing Service, which follows Friday night’s opening Mass. Take the time to gather with fellow Catholics and receive Christ’s healing touch. “When you read the bible it is hard not to notice how often Jesus healed people. That same Jesus is present in the Eucharist, and he will heal the church whenever we gather in faith and prayer and ask for what we need”. Fr. Tim Hepburn
Prayer teams will be available to pray with people. Adoration, prayer, and worship will be from 7:45 – 9:45 with the prayer teams remaining until 10:30.
Join hundreds of Catholic Young Adults from around the Archdiocese of Atlanta and beyond for this evening of fellowship, friendship and faith. With an opportunity to meet and mingle with other Catholics around Atlanta, the REVIVE track will host the first young adult chapter expo. Come meet young adult parish leaders from around Atlanta, find out what’s happening around your area and beyond, check out their calendar of events, and sign up for their mailings and networks. We look forward to seeing you there and stay for our After Party.
As the kick off to Theology on Tap, join in after the track is over at the hotel bar, where you can meet, mingle and hang out with hundreds of young adults, priests, seminarians and religious brothers & religious sisters. We look forward to seeing you there.
