The St. Peter Diocese Youth Convention continued with its third day being the sports competition and banquet. The nearly 400 youth were able to form teams from their parishes and play anything from soccer to basketball, volleyball and even ping pong. The day began with breakfast at St. Mary’s after which the youth gathered in the church to pray Morning Prayer. They then got onto their buses and were taken to a local high school where they were able to compete in different sports for trophies.
