Frassati Fest Recap!

Thanks for tuning in to see what this past weekend held for the teens of the Madison Diocese who joined as at Frassati Fest!

First up, the following were the TOP 3 highlights of the weekend, as found on the student evaluations.

1. Confession and Adoration
2. The Dance Party
3. Meeting New Friends and Spending Time with Old Friends

Those definitely speak to how transformative and down right fun the weekend was. Also, during the weekend, social media was all the rage! The following is a small sampling of the Instagram photos that were tagged with #frassatifest. See more here.

Our incredible tech team kept these photos rolling on the screens all weekend, as well as the Tweets about the weekend, which you can see here.

This great weekend would not have been possible without a couple folks, so we wanted to introduce them to you! The first is Pete Burds who took the stage as our keynote speaker. He’s a rock star young adult from the Milwaukee area. By day, he works as the campus minister at St. Thomas More High School; on the nights and weekends, he spends time evangelizing all over the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, loving the Lord and hanging out with his new fiancĂ© Emily (who we were lucky to meet during the weekend). The teens gave him rave reviews on their evaluations after dropping inspiration bombs all weekend long.

The second big group of folks that deserve a shout out would be the members of our Planning Team. They worked hard over the past 7 months to put on an event that would not soon be forgotten, hopefully because it helped to shape and transform many hearts. These teens and adults came from all over the Diocese, and at the big event, they emcee’d, gave testimonies, made friends and welcomed everyone to the event with more JOY than we could have asked for.

To help you take a look at the events of the weekend, below we’ve included the video we showed the teens before the headed home! Enjoy watching.

We are excited to see you all again next year! In the meantime, keep in touch through this blog, as well as our social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram)!
