Rally new 1440x420


Bishop Burbidge invites all teens of the Diocese to join him at RALLY 2023! This annual event is an opportunity for the young Church in the Diocese of Arlington to gather each year to pray, learn, and celebrate the Catholic faith. RALLY includes Mass with Bishop Burbidge, Eucharistic Adoration, inspirational speakers and entertainers, breakout sessions, inflatable games, music, and more! 

RALLY is designed to be open to any high school aged youth wanting to attend, at any stage in their faith journey. 
Our goal is to have all 70 parishes and 5 missions participating in this event. If you have a child in high school, we encourage you to call your parish to see if they will be participating. Perhaps if they are not already planning to participate, this will change if they hear that there are interested families! 


WHEN: Sunday, October 22, 2023. 12 p.m. - 8 p.m.   
WHERE: Bishop O'Connell High School, Arlington, VA 
PROMO VIDEO: Will be posted here in September 2023.
HOW TO SIGN UP: Young people that want to participate must sign up through their parish point of contact (usually the Director of Youth Ministry). Registration will take place online. The instructions and registration link will be found here when it opens on September 22.

More information will be made available here as the event draws near, but please make sure it is on your calendar now!
