2010-Lifest-Mini-Poster“Lifest is a great opportunity to interact with Christians from many backgrounds,” said Fr. Tom Long, vocation director for the Green Bay Diocese and a member of the diocesan Lifest planning committee. “Our Catholic presence is a support to the many Catholic families and young adults who attend. It is also an opportunity to dialogue with other Christians, or with Catholics who may be searching in their faith.”

The discounted tickets, available through the Diocese of Green Bay, include the one-day passes and full event passes for children and adults. Prices are as follows:

• Full event general (ages 13 and above), $64;

• Full event junior (ages 8-12) $32;

• One-day general (ages 13 and above), $36

• One-day junior (ages 8-12) $18.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Diocese of Green Bay will host an information table at the Lifest hospitality center. There will also be nightly campfires with food and fellowship, daily Mass, sacrament of reconciliation and rosary recitation at the diocesan camp site, and Sunday Mass July 11 at 9:30 p.m.

Deacon Ray DuBois, another Lifest planning committee member, said that the diocese expanded its programming at the campsite area last year. “Our opportunities for daily rosary, Mass, confession and fellowship brought in many festival attendees who were looking for a Catholic perspective on their Lifest experience,” he said. “The campsite and campfires became a non-threatening venue where friends and strangers had the opportunity to mingle and talk with our seminarians, CYE crew, priests, deacons, catechists, teachers and parish volunteers who came to this gathering place.”

Last year’s Sunday morning Mass attracted nearly 700 Lifest attendees, added Deacon DuBois.

New this year will be free counseling services available through Catholic Charities and free spiritual walks with a certified Catholic spiritual director. Julianne Donlon, diocesan adult faith formation director, will also serve as a Lifest speaker. She will appear at the Speaking Tent on Thursday, July 8, 10:30 a.m.

Members of the diocese are invited to purchase “United in the Eucharist” T-shirts and wear them to Lifest. The blue T-shirts with white lettering and graphics can be purchased for $7.
