Obey Your Thirst Youth Rally gathers teens


WATERLOO (KWWL) -  More than 1,600 teens from Catholic churches around Eastern Iowa came together to celebrate their faith Sunday. Fired up for the bi-annual youth rally at the Five Sullivan Brothers Convention Center in Waterloo.

This year's theme, "Obey Your Thirst", was directly related to the floods of 2008, and teens were able to share messages of prayer and hope to the flood victims. "The theme is obey your thirst and just trying to connect that to what out state went through a few months ago with the amount of water we've had and talking to kids about what they're thirsting for and how those floods left people thirsting for real physical tangible needs," said Kevin Feyen
