Rise Up is a conference for young adults hosted by Catholic Christian Outreach, a Canadian university student movement. But Rise Up is more than a conference; it exists to motivate and inspire leaders for the renewal of the world.
Rise Up will return.
Friends, we recently made the difficult decision to cancel Rise Up: Unleashed. Our deepest desire is for our students to encounter Christ, and we have great expectations that the Lord will accomplish this in many ways this year.
The pandemic has continued to affect how we want to connect and spend our time together. Ongoing pandemic fatigue has led to lower registration numbers than we felt was prudent to continue with the conference. Rather than persisting in the unknown, we decided to make the decision now, allowing all of us to enter more fully into the Advent and Christmas season, ready to encounter our Lord Jesus.
A lot is being planned for next semester. Keep your eyes out for activities and events through your local campus.
We appreciate your understanding of this difficult decision. Know of our prayers for each of you, and please keep us in your prayers as well.
