Local church holds event for youth in wake of recent violence

Local church holds event for youth in wake of recent violence

Posted:
An event geared towards the youth of the community kicked off Thursday night at Olivet A.M.E. Church in South Bend.

It's called the P-Squared Convocation, standing for praise and prayer.   Organizers expected over 250 people between the ages of 15 and 22 to attend the convocation and participate in the 28 workshops over the next two days.

Reverend Franklin Breckenridge helped to organize the convocation and said it's extremely timely given the recent violence in the area.  "We are certain that this is going to have an impact and everyone who attends will have a spiritual experience. "

The convocation continues Friday and Saturday.  Both days will start at 8 in the morning with a mile prayer walk that stops at the home where John Swoveland Jr. was killed.
