Designed for young people in mind, the event’s purpose is to “discover how you can live your dream and have an active faith life,” according to the Archdiocese’s website.

Walhberg is not one to shy away regarding his faith and frequently talks about it via social media. He claims to attend mass and pray before bed on the daily.
