"This is the first time the Southwest has ever had anything like this for the Catholic youth here and I wanted to be a part of it," remarked Henrie, a practicing Catholic who is best known for playing Ted Mosby's future son on How I Met Your Mother, Justin Russo in Wizards of Waverly Place, and Larry on That's So Raven.
The sponsor of the event is Durango based LifeGuard, who offers help to women in crisis pregnancy, free ultrasounds, and publicly advocates through education for the legal recognition of the Personhood of the preborn child.
SWCYC will also feature speaker and author Chris Stefanick, recording artist Danielle Rose, worship leader Simon Gerard Cordero, as well as Bishop Fernando Isern of the Diocese of Pueblo, and Bishop James Wall of the Diocese of Gallup.
Over 600 teens are expected.
"The SWCYC will be an all day celebration of the Catholic faith. We will have amazing speakers, Mass, Confession, and we will conclude with Eucharistic Adoration," stated LifeGuard Director Dan Anguis. "We are honored to feature such incredible talents and to have the support of the Bishops."
