Diocese of Brooklyn Catholic Youth Day

The Diocese of Brooklyn held its first Catholic Youth Day since the start of the pandemic Nov. 18 at Immaculate Conception Parish in Jamaica. Around 150 teenagers from throughout the diocese came together to reinvigorate their faith and celebrate the Eucharist. 

Among the celebrants at the four-hour event was Bishop Robert Brennan, who led an intimate Eucharistic procession, bringing the body of Christ to each of the attendees. 

It took six months to organize the event, said Father James Kuroly, the director of youth and young adult ministry, and included a special visit from Father Patrick Hyde, a Dominican priest and pastor of Hoosier Catholic in Indianapolis.
