Faith More Precious Than Gold | 1 Peter 1:7

High School Track

Calling all 9th – 12th grade high school students! Come join us at the Diocese of Charlotte Eucharistic Congress High School Track for engaging talks, awesome music, Adoration, Confession, and a ton of fun!
Is Jesus truly our Lord or just a legend? Apologist Trent Horn will answer this question in an engaging keynote talk. Musician Dana Catherine will emcee the track & provide music.

Keynote Speaker: Trent Horn

After his conversion to the Catholic Faith, Trent Horn earned a master’s degree in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville, a master’s degree in philosophy from Holy Apostles College, and is pursuing a master’s degree in bioethics from the University of Mary.

As a staff apologist for Catholic Answers, he specializes in teaching Catholics to graciously and persuasively engage those who disagree with them. Trent models that approach each week on the radio program Catholic Answers Live, where he dialogues with atheists, pro-choice advocates, and other non-Catholic callers.

Trent is also an adjunct professor of apologetics at Holy Apostles College and the author of seven books, including Answering Atheism, The Case for Catholicism, and Why We’re Catholic: Our Reasons for Faith, Hope, and Love.

Emcee & Musician: Dana Catherine

A young singer/songwriter and speaker, Dana travels throughout the U.S. to encourage and inspire others with her songs and stories. Growing up in a Catholic family, Dana always had a strong faith, but it wasn’t until she went to college that her relationship with God truly deepened. Through the ups and downs of college life, Dana began to understand that true and lasting happiness, peace, and purpose is found in Christ alone. Only then did she realize that God was calling her to step out and share His truth and love with others using the musical gifts she was given.

At just 25 years old, Dana’s music and bold witness have led her to perform and speak at high schools, youth rallies, conferences and other diocesan youth events alongside nationally known speakers, including Leah Darrow, Dr. Scott Hahn, and Mark Hart. She’s also led worship at numerous retreats, including those led by accomplished author and speaker, Father Jacques Philippe, and toured with international Christian artists, such as Phil Wickham (“This is Amazing Grace”), Micah Tyler (“Different”) and Josh Wilson (“Pushing Back the Dark”).

With one album already under her belt, Dana recently released her latest EP, Nothing in the World, which can be found everywhere music is sold.
