Teens celebrate the joy of
TEC (Teens Encounter Christ) is often described as one of the most deeply spiritual events for youth in the diocese.
The most recent three-day TEC experience included 11 youth and one young adult, as well as 13 youth and adult team members.
The structure of TEC leads toward the encounter with Christ, as well as the forming of a community among the participants.
“I would have to say it’s the Holy Spirit,” Polley said, “simply for the way everyone, came together and formed a community. There was a bond formed in this group that I have not witnessed through TEC in quite a while.”
The TEC, which was held at St. Dominic Church in Garden City, received a special visit by Most Rev. John B. Brungardt, who enjoyed participating in TEC events, and celebrating both the Sunday Liturgy and the emotional closing Mass.
“The bond that was formed between all of those involved in this TEC was very apparent,” Polley said.
