The fourth annual rally for teens, sponsored by the archdiocesan Youth and Young Adult Ministry, was held Feb. 27 at Cardinal O’Hara High School for some 200 kids. There were service activities, musical acts, inspiring talks, confessions and Eucharistic adoration, all focusing on the theme of “relentless” mercy, grace and love — see scenes in our photo gallery, and read complete coverage here.
