What is Steubenville Conference All About?

2019 Theme-  BELONG “See what love the Father has bestowed on us, that we may be called children of God.” -1 John 3:1

From His throne in heaven to the depths of your heart, these words of Jesus are an invitation for you to receive the new life that He alone can give. He is longing to elevate your life above the things of this world – to help you overcome fear, anxiety, confusion and doubt. He wants to break the things that hold you down and give you freedom from sin. He is calling you to follow Him and enter into a transforming experience with His love, grace, and mercy! He can make you new!

This summer, join over 50,000 other Catholic teens at one of our 25 youth conferences and experience the joy of following Christ and being elevated by His love.

This Conference is comprised of three jam-packed days with talks by some of the BEST Catholic speakers in the country, prayer, Mass, adoration, Confession, joy and JESUS!  Time and time again, we have seen teens have an amazing experience of who God really is and who they are called to be!

Cost is $275

 Make Checks payable to St. Edward the Confessor Parish.  Fundraising AND SCHOLARSHIPS are available, but please notify Laura ASAP if you’re interested!  Don’t let money be the reason to NOT come to this conference!  This cost covers lodging, all meals, a Steubenville T-Shirt.
