What is a Diocesan Middle School Rally?
In an effort to reach our middle school youth, the Office for Evangelization offers Middle School Youth Rallies. This will be the sixth year for the rallies. The Middle School Youth Rally is a one-day diocesan gathering of middle school (grades 6- 8) youth from across the Diocese of Richmond.  This event is intended to be a high-energy day filled with opportunities to gather as a Catholic Diocesan community which will integrate fun and community building with the richness of our Catholic faith. The rally will be offered in two locations to be able to reach youth in all areas of the Diocese.
