Bright faces and lively smiles are a mainstay of The Monitor Magazine’s latest IN FOCUS package, which reports on the recent Diocesan Youth Conference. Hundreds of teens, described as “The Church of Now,” gathered from every corner of the Diocese to take part in a day of prayer, service and spiritual growth, setting a powerful example of how to inspire others through their Catholic faith.

The young Church of Trenton was in the spotlight throughout the March issue, which also includes the winning entries in the diocesan Respect Life contest, coverage of the Called By Name vocations discernment program, and special section showcasing Catholic Colleges.
