11 students, along with hundreds of other teens, gathered this summer for a day full of games, live music, and Mass.
AMP Fest was held at the Transfiguration Center in Ludlow Falls. For many of the Eagles, this was their second year attending the event.
“I knew I wanted to attend my second AMP Fest this year because I had such an amazing time at last year's AMP Fest,” shared Claire Leingang ‘21.
The students were part of the St. Christopher parish and faced off against other parishes during games and leadership activities.
“We had a lot of fun playing games such as human foosball, bubble soccer, real life battleship, and more,” said Kate Schinaman ‘21.
Fr. Ethan Moore, the newly named director of Catholic Campus Ministry at Wright State University, not only held Mass for the event, but gave a unique introduction to the featured musical group, ALOB.
“My favorite part was when Father Ethan rapped an introduction for ALOB,” laughed Matt Reuter. ‘19.
“My most favorite was when ALOB performed his music,” Lauren Sass ‘21 said. “His group came all the way from California. He shared some really amazing experiences, from converting people to become Catholic to healing someone's foot.”
“My favorite part was the talk with ALOB,” agreed Madeline Frasure ‘21. “He said some really amazing things that just made me stop and think about my life.”
The fun-filled day concluded with Mass and reflection.
“Having Mass and all the music that they played was so powerful,” said Sara Francis ‘21.
“Celebrating Mass with Fr. Ethan is always a treat, but when you add ALOB and really good music, it is really touching,” Mikayla Jette ‘21 reflected. “Being able to kneel before the altar as the Eucharist is being lifted in the air and hearing the beautiful messages from God through music is one of the best feelings in the world. I am very grateful that I got to share this experience with so many other people.”
