The Seek 2013 gathering brought thousands of Catholic college students to Orlando, Florida's Swan and Dolphin Hotel Jan. 2-6, encouraging attendees to search for what God wants for them in life.
"It's exciting to see so many people who care about their faith who love Jesus and want to follow Jesus and love the Church," Jeremy Rivera, national director of marketing and communications for the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS), told CNA Jan. 8.
FOCUS presented the conference, which zeroed in on the theme "What Moves You." The event's speakers gave wide-ranging talks about faith and contemporary Catholic life.
Over 5,000 attendees participated in Eucharistic Adoration while 3,000 to 4,000 students went to confession with 150 priests, Rivera said.
