Participant Experiences at a Charismatic Catholic Youth Rally: What Happens When Participant Socialization and Organizer Intentions Do Not Match?
Flatt, Kevin N.; Haskell, D. Millard
Religious Education, v111 n2 p137-152 2016
Adolescent religion is increasingly well researched but the youth rallies staged by many Christian groups remain understudied. This article adds to our understanding of these rallies through a case study of a large Catholic youth rally in Toronto. We identify the reported religious experiences of rally participants and compare them with the goals of the rally's organizers. We find a partial mismatch between the organizers' intentions and the participants' reported experiences, which we attribute to a mismatch between the borrowed evangelical approaches used by the rally organizers and the participants' Catholic religious socialization. We conclude with possible implications for practitioners.
