KANSAS CITY, Kan. — In a hypersexualized culture, it’s difficult for young people to find their bearings and follow the truth of their worth. 

That’s why Catholic inspirational speaker and author Christopher West and musician Mike Mangione are teaming up for their “Made for More” event.

On April 4, the two will address young people with a message of love and hope at Prince of Peace Church in Olathe. They will address decisive questions about what it means to be human and how to live in a way that fosters authenticity and fulfillment.

Sam Meier, director of the archdiocesan My House Initiative, went to a Christopher West event several years ago with his family and attests to the power of the experience.

“Personally, I want many friends and parents of my children’s friends to hear this incredible message,” he said. “This event invites people to an inspiring vision of something so much better [than our current culture]!”

The event is co-hosted by Holy Trinity Parish in Lenexa, Sacred Heart Parish in Shawnee, Church of the Ascension in Overland Park and the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.

The night will consist of inspirational presentations, music, art and moving witnesses, said Meier, and it is open to all.

 “We’re praying it has an impact on the hearts of many people in our archdiocese,” he said.
