How did CONVIVIO get started?

The first Convivio started in 1977 with a group of young people who were united by a desire to change the world. As a response, they decided to act by getting together with other young people in a faith conference. During the conference, they discussed questions and found deep and meaningful answers for all those in the world who needed their help. Since then, it has spread like wildfire! Thousands of young people from around the world have been touched by the experience of participating in Convivio, including many in the Diocese of Bridgeport, where Convivio CT happens yearly.  With the support of then-Bishop William Lori, Convivio came to the Diocese of Bridgeport in 2010.  Since then, Convivio has continued to grow and touch many lives with the support of the Diocese and Bishop Frank Caggiano!
