Close to 250 teens from around the Diocese of Nashville attended the Youth 2000 retreat held Feb. 15-16 at the Catholic Pastoral Center. Bishop J. Mark Spalding celebrated the closing Mass of the retreat on Sunday. The bishop encouraged the teens to be, like Christ, a light unto the world. “To give light to what is dark, I’m going to have to sacrifice,” he said. “I’m going to have to give something of myself.” For more photos, visit
