'Discover the Gifts' at Seton Hall University at 5th Annual NJ Young Adult Conference

June 06, 2008 - 10:40 PDT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MEDIA ADVISORY

SOUTH ORANGE, NJ (JUNE 6, 2008) - Young men and women in their 20's and 30's, married and single throughout New Jersey will "Discover the Gifts" at the fifth annual New Jersey Young Adult Conference. The event will be held at Seton Hall University, South Orange, New Jersey on Saturday, June 14, in Jubilee Hall Auditorium from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The purpose of the conference is to give young adults throughout New Jersey the chance to meet their peers, share their individual experiences of faith and come together as a community.

Since the inception of the conference in 2003, it has progressed, not only in the number of young adults attending, but through speakers, workshops and sponsors. In just five years, the conference attendance has nearly tripled to almost 200 people per year. This year's conference is anticipated to have close to 300 attendees.

Sister Marilyn Minter, CSSF, currently the director of Music and Liturgy at the provincial house in Lodi, and campus minister at Immaculate Conception High School, will deliver the keynote address. Sister Marilyn says, "The joy of religious life as a Felician Sister is being a living Gospel to all." She will call upon her work in education, music and ministry within the Felician community for over 31 years to help young men and women recognize their God-given gifts and talents, and discover how they can use them to serve the Lord and the people of God.

The conference will also include six workshop speakers, all focusing on this year's theme, "Discovering the Gifts: 'The Gift You Have Received, Give as a Gift,'" Matthew 10:8. Topics of the workshops include: the gift of healing, the gift of service, the gift of self in family and relationships, reverencing the gift, finding your gifts (tools for self-discovery) and a World Youth Day panel.

Participants will also have the opportunity to attend Mass, participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, partake in the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, listen to praise and worship music, enjoy two meals and have plenty of time for socializing with others.

The 2008 New Jersey Young Adult Conference is being sponsored by Parish Partnership Program of the Institute for Christian Spirituality, Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology at Seton Hall University, the Archdiocese of Newark and the Dioceses of Paterson, Metuchen and Trenton.

To register, or to learn more about the conference, please visit the Web site at: www.njyoungadultconference.org.

Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology started the Institute for Christian Spirituality in order to provide a center where those already in ministry or those considering a vocation to ministry, may obtain a solid foundation in their faith, learn effective skills in pastoral ministry and leadership, and be given tools for discernment and spiritual growth.

Taking its charge from 2 Timothy 1:6, "I remind you to stir into flame the gift of God within you..." all four of the Institute's "Making Connections" initiatives are designed to call, inspire, train and sustain excellent pastoral ministry.
