The B.C. Catholic has Deborah Gyapong's coverage of the recent Canadian Catholic Youth Minsistry Networking Conference in Ottawa. The approximately 300 attendees were challenged at the event to "unplug" themselves:

Unplug from the Internet, take out those ear buds, take some time to be still and rediscover the love of God—and make that prayer time and stillness a habit if you want to effectively share the Good News with young people.

That was the message that about 300 Catholic youth ministry leaders from across Canada steeped in March 9-12 at the Canadian Catholic Youth Ministry Network conference here on the theme: “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10).
