Diocese of Saginaw Launches Website to Promote Summer Youth Event
SAGINAW – The Catholic Diocese of Saginaw has launched a new website, to promote its upcoming MYE Faith youth event on Aug. 8, 2015 at Saginaw Valley State University. MYE Faith, which debuted in 2013, is a one-day event in which youth encounter Christ through the Eucharist, dynamic speakers, spirit-filled prayer, stirring music, and more.
“With Bishop Cistone’s leadership, the generous people of our diocese have again worked together to make this youth event free for attendees in the Diocese of Saginaw,” said Mark Graveline, coordinator of youth ministry for the Diocese of Saginaw. “ will help us to reach more youth and encourage them to participate in this awesome experience. Our hope is that they will grow closer to Jesus Christ while they are there having fun with their friends.”
The new website includes photos and videos showcasing the MYE Faith youth event experience. This year’s event headliners are featured on the website and include JJ Weeks Band, which will perform a concert for the youth. The band’s song “Let Them See You,” was a Billboard top 20 song for more than 30 weeks. Another highlight includes former Miss Michigan, Kelly Nieto, who is the creator of “The Cross and the Light,” an epic, Broadway-style musical which shares the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection. She will bring the concert experience to the event and will speak to the youth during breakout sessions planned during the day. These and other activities, including information about other featured speakers and breakout sessions, volunteer opportunities and contact information for event coordinators in every parish across the diocese is available on
