XLT (Exalt!)

The Diocesan Vocation Office launched XLT (Exalt!) in March at Divine Mercy Parish in Scranton. You might be asking yourself what exactly this program is all about.

A typical XLT consists of Eucharistic Adoration, praise & worship music, a speaker, the opportunity for the sacrament of Reconciliation, a reflection from one of our priests, and a social.

"It is very exciting that the young church is getting involved in an incredibly moving and spiritually deepening experience such as XLT. I look forward to these events and seeing the Diocese move in such a positive direction with our generation."
          -Abbe Truschel, XLT young adult volunteer

“One of the greatest parts of NCYC was XLT. The powerful and moving music, amazing speaker, and the silence in the arena during adoration were all breath-taking. I’m so glad we are able to bring something we enjoyed so much in Indianapolis back to the Diocese of Scranton.”
          -Jacob Kwiatkowski, student leader, Exaltation of the Holy Cross Youth Ministry
