Fifth Annual Leave a Mark

Gathering of the Young Church with Bishop Bambera 

“Dear young people, we didn’t come into this world to ‘vegetate’, to take it easy, to make our lives a comfortable sofa to fall asleep on,” said Pope Francis at World Youth Day 2016 in Krakow, Poland. “No, we came for another reason: to leave a mark. It is very sad to pass through life without leaving a mark.”

For the past few years, hundreds of young people gathered in the Cathedral of Saint Peter with Bishop Bambera to kickoff National Vocation Awareness Week in the Diocese of Scranton.

Bishop Joseph C. Bambera is inviting the young church of the Diocese of Scranton to gather once again this year in the Cathedral of Saint Peter on Sunday, November 1 for a special Mass at 7 p.m. Due to the current pandemic, there will not be a reception following the Mass.

Young adults (aged 18-40) will be required to make a reservation in order to attend. Masks and social distancing will be enforced. The Mass will also be live streamed on diocesan media for those who are unable to attend in person.
