The 2019 National Youth Gathering is upon us! The Michigan District has three offers that your youth can participate in to broaden their experience in Minneapolis!

We would love to have ALL groups represent our great state by buying and wearing our very own Michigan District NYG T-shirt!  Plan to wear them on Sunday, July 14th!  That is the day of our Michigan District Event at Concordia University, St. Paul!

2. Bus Package CLOSED  **Please contact Gail Milatz or Randy Bickel if you have any questions. 

  • The Saginaw Bus Center will provide buses for all those who are in need of transportation to Minneapolis.
  • You will be notified of your pickup location and time along the route once it is determined by the bus line.
  • The cost is $225 per person (a 10% deposit of $25/person is required at sign-up. Your church will be invoiced for the balance.)
  • Departure to the Minneapolis area hotels will be during morning hours on Wednesday, July 10. The return trip to Michigan will be on July 15.
  • On the morning of Thursday, July 11, the buses will pick up youth for a trip to the Mall of America.

They also will provide transportation to other activities (TBA) available before the Opening Mass Event.
  • Additionally, on Sunday, July 14, the buses will provide transportation to and from the Michigan District Event at Concordia University St. Paul and drop youth off at the Mass Event afterward.
