Boldly Sent Youth Rally 

Boldly Sent is a peer-led event gathering teens of the diocese together with their bishop in exploration and celebration of the Catholic faith. 

This year will be the first year we expand the typically one-day event to a full weekend: Saturday, October 20th will be a day of evangelization and charity in the Des Moines metro community (led by the parishes), followed by a Diocesan-wide Dodgeball tournament. 

Sunday, October 21st will be the youth rally at the Iowa Events Center, keynoted by Katie Prejean-McGrady! Sunday's event will have separate tracks for middle school (grades 6-8), underclassmen (9-10), upperclassmen (grades 11-12), & adults (parents & chaperones).

To get registered for the weekend, go here.

If you are an adult attending the weekend as a chaperone, you MUST show photo ID on site, show Safe Environment certification by Friday, October 19th, and pass a Background Check from your parish or the Diocese.  For the Background Check, contact your parish or the Diocese by Friday, October 5th, in order to ensure adequate processing time.
