Seven youth and their adult leaders from Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Hays and St. Fidelis Catholic Church in Victoria attended the "One Bread, One Cup" summer liturgical leadership conferences for high school youth and campus and youth ministers on the campus of St. Meinrad School of Theology from July 7 to 11 in St. Meinrad, Ind.

During the five-day conference, the youth learned about their Catholic faith through sessions of catechesis, liturgical and spiritual formation, and participation in liturgies.

They also were trained in liturgical ministries, such as lector, Eucharistic minister and cantor, learning skills that they can use in their parishes and high schools.

Attending the conference were: Alicia Hammeke, Colin Schmidtberger, Joslyn Lang, Lindsey McAlonan, Michelle Harris, Nathan Felder and Ryan Post. Also attending were adult participants Curtis and Annette Hammeke, Heather Robben, Rick and Gayla Binder, and Russell Robben.

The "One Bread, One Cup" conference is conducted three times each summer as a program of St. Meinrad School of Theology. The school is operated by the Benedictine monks of St. Meinrad Archabbey and offers initial and continuing education for priests, permanent deacons and lay ministers.
