The youth may want to bring a few dollars for Mass Offering, souvenirs merchandise and extra snacks which will be sold by the host parish to benefit their youth programs.

Registration fees are non-refundable.  However, substitutions may be made.  If the rally is canceled, participant may be refunded their full or partial registration.

The Key Leader can make substitutions at any time by modifying their group registration.

  • Login to your group registration
  • Remove the group member that is no longer attending.

Please note that Chaperone Modifications cannot be made after February 12, 2024. This is to provide enough time to ensure that all chaperones are current on their safe environment training.

Sixth through eighth graders are invited to attend the rally!  The Archdiocesan Junior High Youth Rally is developmentally appropriate for early adolescents.  Participants younger than sixth grade and older than eighth grade will not be permitted to attend the Archdiocesan Junior High Youth Rally.

Rally check-in will begin at 10:30 a.m.  Only Parish/school contacts need to come to the registration table to receive the rally materials for their parish group. For those who have turned in their paperwork and are not making substitutions, registration is quick and painless.  Please make sure that you do not arrive earlier than the set time.  This will allow our team to complete set-up and rehearsals.

T-shirts will be given to the parish contact at the registration table.  Most people like to wear their T-shirt over their clothes for the day.

We provide lunch and dinner.  If someone in your group has dietary restrictions, we will only be able to accommodate a vegetarian choice. You may want to bring your own food.  Youth will also participate in a wide variety of onsite service projects benefiting the archdiocesan community and their own parishes.  The items needed will be sent to the parishes and schools at a later date.

Permission Slip & Liability Forms

  • A Permission Slip and Liability Form is needed for all Youth participants and should be submitted by their parent/guardian.
  • All Adult Participants (Key Leader and Chaperones) need to have a Medical Consent and Liability form.

All youth and adult forms will collect using a digital form.

  • After completing a group registration, the Key Leader will receive an email with detailed instructions, including a link to share with parents/chaperones.
  • When a new form is submitted the key leader will receive a notification email with a link to access/download a copy of the completed Permission Slip and Liability form, the participant and parent will also receive a confirmation email.
  • Save this for your records so that you can print a copy to have on hand when you travel to and from Jr High Youth Rally.

When you receive a new form, you should immediately download a copy for your records. The Jr High Youth Rally Team will also receive a digital copy and will have access to them during the event.

It is highly recommended that you print several copies of these forms, one set to leave at the parish and one set to have with the key leader throughout the event.

Additionally, if you are arranging group travel (Bus or carpool) a copy of each from should be with the driver/designated leader in each vehicle.

The most likely cause of this is that one of the required emails was not entered correctly (misspelled or in the wrong format).

This does not mean that the form was not received, just that the automated flow sending the email was not triggered.

Email the JHYR team to see if the form was completed. Please provide the following information:

  • Key Leader Name
  • Parish Name
  • Participant Name
  • Date the form was submitted
