Rich Curran coQuincy — More than 300 sixth through eighth grade students from Quincy's four Catholic elementary schools were to have taken part in a diocesan junior high Youth Day on Friday, Oct. 16, at the Oakley-Lindsay Civic Center.

Rich Curran, a Catholic youth minister, from Appleton, Wis., was to have again been the featured speaker and facilitator. The theme for the diocesan Youth Day is "Mercy and Compassion." Fifty students from Quincy Notre Dame High School were to have participated by serving as group discussion leaders for the junior high students.

Curran's passion and enthusiasm for living life fully is highly contagious and his humor, stories, and specific action steps leave audiences ready to go out and make a difference.

The Youth Day in Quincy is being sponsored by the Springfield diocese and the four Catholic elementary schools, Blessed Sacrament, St. Dominic, St. Francis and St. Peter. More information is available by contacting Deacon Terry Ellerman at (217) 242-2467 or .
