More than 180 teens, catechists, priests and chaperones from across the Diocese of Superior, along with Bishop James P. Powers, road-tripped to Indiana for the National Catholic Youth Conference on Nov. 16-17. From left, Elly Bjork, a junior from St. Bridget, River Falls, poses with a mini Pope Francis and Amy Burns, the youth minister at St. Bridget’s. The photo was shot in a hallway at the Indiana Convention Center between breakout sessions. “I love how NCYC manages to get youth to step out of their normal ‘blend-in’ culture and encourages them to just be themselves and have fun,” said Diane Wengelski, the parish’s coordinator for elementary faith formation.
