The Diocese of Little Rock’s youth ministry program restarted June 6 with an outdoor youth rally, Glory on the Grounds, at St. John Center in Little Rock. All diocesan statewide youth events, including the state convention and Search retreats, have been canceled since March 2020 because of restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic.
About 350 teens in seventh to 12th grade attended to hear nationally known musician and speaker Steve Agrisano. Agrisano was originally scheduled to be the keynote speaker for the 2020 state convention and rescheduled for April 2021. Director Liz Tingquist said she was happy he could reschedule a third time as a fun, kick-off event to get teens back into youth ministry.
Everyone came prepared with chairs, umbrellas and tents to ensure the event wasn’t canceled because of rain. The day included lunch, Mass and a Eucharistic procession for the feast of Corpus Christi.
