WHAT IS A STEUBENVILLE CONFERENCE
Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio seeks to provide an opportunity for teens to come to know the saving love of Christ by providing a powerful experience of the Catholic Church and its sacramental life.
This conference is specialized to address the resources and needs of today’s Catholic youth, organized on a national and regional level. With an exciting line up of speakers, musicians, and presenters, the High School Youth Conference will challenge Catholic youth to stand firm in their faith, rely on the awesome power of Jesus Christ who is their guide, friend, and Savior, and show that faith to the world.
The Sacraments are the highlight of the conference. Teens will join in a dynamic Eucharistic Liturgy during the weekend and will be given the opportunity to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. There is also a powerful time of Eucharistic Exposition and Adoration. Many teens encounter the Holy Spirit for the first time. This leads to a tremendous conversion for many young people.
2019 THEME SUMMARY
This theme will speak to relationship with God as sons and daughters, with one another as brothers and sisters in Christ, with the Church and the world. Through this theme we hope to address two specific trends in youth culture today: the lack of true and authentic relationships, especially as a result of the use of social media, leading to feelings of loneliness and isolation. We want the youth to know their true identity as sons and daughters of the Other and the bond we have with one another as the Body of Christ.
The Steubenville Youth Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, are a series of 25 conferences across North America that help teens encounter the love of Christ every summer. Our mission is to build the Church by evangelizing, equipping, and empowering God’s children to become radical and joyful disciples.
