NORTH VANCOUVER—A group of happy Catholic youths swarmed Camp Jubilee this summer for Searching in the Spirit, a week-long program created to strengthen the faith of newly confirmed youth.

The event, which ran from Aug. 28 to Sept. 1 this year, included Mass with Father Giovanni Schiesari, prayer, reflection, opportunities for confession, and outdoor and indoor activities such as swimming, kayaking, archery, and arts and crafts.
