Just a quick advert, while it's not strictly a youth event, we may find it interesting. I certainly have wondered how can I bear witness in this oppressive culture, often times, it seems much easier to keep my Catholic identity private and scurry around without proclaiming the good news. I think probably because the people who get megaphones out in the street offend my sense of sanity...
