About

Happenings are spiritual renewal weekends for older high school students, led by their peers. The diocese sponsors three weekends each year in various locations and has sponsored over 145 weekends to date. Each Happening begins Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. sharp, and wraps up around 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. It is a lock-in, so prepare to stay the entire weekend. The Diocese of West Texas hosts three Happenings each year, usually the first weekend of March, the first weekend of August, and the weekend just before Thanksgiving.

Any student in the 10th grade through 12th grade can attend. A small number of adults may also attend. Weekends tend to fill quickly, so don't delay! You will receive detailed information about the weekend via email after you register. The registration cost is $50, and a deposit must be paid to confirm your registration. Even if you have filled out all of your forms, the online system won't notify us until the deposit is processed.

Scholarships for Happening participants and staff are available. Contact the Happening Board for more information.
