Rendez-vous is a place where leaders can be inspired and, in turn, inspire youth and young adults in their communities!

Dancing, singing, praying, playing, laughing, and learning—these are all elements of Rendez-vous 2017. Hundreds of youth, young adults, and their leaders will gather at Concordia University in Montreal in August 2017 to celebrate faith.

This will be the third event. Rendez-vous was held in Toronto in 2011 and in Winnipeg in 2014. Each one has a different theme and a regional flavour. The common thread is the energy and enthusiasm that youth share and take back to their local communities of faith and regions of the country.

Participants at Rendez-vous offered some of the following feedback:

“My home group and our leaders were amazing. Rendez-vous wouldn’t have been the same without the connections, support, and love!”

“I was moved by the diversity and courage of all speakers and appreciated that there was something for everyone.”

“Youth events are extremely important because they give the youth a community to connect with and a sense of belonging with other youth.”

We sing thanksgiving for Rendez-vous! Our gifts for Mission & Service offer youth and young adults a place to gather in community.

If Mission & Service is already a regular part of your giving, thank you so much! If you have not given for Mission & Service, please join me in making Mission & Service a regular part of your life of faith. In all our Mission & Service giving, with a willing heart, we sing thanksgiving to God!
