Youth Day 2008
(Thursday, February 28) is less than two months away! Please remember that Youth Day usually fills to capacity before the date when tickets are mailed out (which is after January 31st). Remember, there is no ON SITE registration at Youth Day. If we receive your registration after Youth Day is closed we will return the forms/money to you.
Don’t forget you can pre-order official Youth Day T-shirts with the Youth Day theme: "About Face! Focused on God!" Also, shirts can have your parish or school name on them! Check out the shirts at That is also the place to make your special orders. Orders must be received by February 15th.


Participate at Youth Day in a special way. An invitation to those in high school and to those adults who would like to help at Youth Day:

AS A YOUTH EMCEE -- Are you or someone you know in high school (grade 9 through 12)? Are you registered for Youth Day 2008 with a school or parish? Do you like performing in front of large crowds? Can you arrive at Youth Day in Anaheim by 8:30 a.m. and can you attend a REQUIRED training day or other rehearsals if needed? If you answered YES to all of these, consider being an EMCEE at YOUTH DAY 2008! (Contact us by Friday, January 4, 2008.)
AS A SINGER OR INSTRUMENTALIST -- To be part of the Youth Day 2008 Arena Music Ministry you must: Be a high school youth (grade 9-12); have experience singing or playing at your parish or school; be willing to make all required rehearsals; be registered with your parish or school for Youth Day.

AS AN ADULT CREW MEMBER -- Youth Day 2008 is looking for adult volunteers to be part of the Moving Crew for Youth Day.
