And, it seems that there is some confusion about which region is taking home (i.e. keeping) the YAClympics trophy. Let’s set them straight, LVGers! Register now to play, volunteer or be a cheerleader for the 2nd Annual YAClympics, a Diocesan-wide competition of physical and intellectual prowess, happening on Saturday, May 21st in Columbia’s beautiful Sesquicentennial State Park. The schedule for the day includes an opportunity to stay for post-event activities – last year, we enjoyed a fantastic dinner and game night socializing (you can even stay in Columbia overnight with one of our YACs for morning Mass & brunch).

Learn more on the Diocesan blog here. The schedule is posted below (link to our Facebook event):
