New Franciscan University Conference Aims to Draw Young Adults to Christ

Franciscan UniversityFranciscan University of Steubenville recently announced the creation of a new youth conference aimed at drawing "young adults to Christ in the sacraments and in community," according to the University.

The conference, entitled "Encounter: Awakening a Generation," will take place from May 30 to June 1, 2014, in St. Louis, Mo.  The Franciscan University of Steubenville Christian Outreach Office is organizing the event in partnership with the Archdiocese of St. Louis Office of Young Adult Ministry.

The University reports:

Participants who attended a Franciscan University of Steubenville Youth Conference as teenagers will find notable differences at Encounter, which will address more mature spiritual themes and have small interactive breakouts, called Impact Sessions, for open discussion.

The conference includes Mass, eucharistic adoration, talks, interactive sessions, social time, late night entertainment, and a Service and Mission Fair that will show how young adults can serve the Church.

Encounter speakers include Paul George, co-founder of Adore Ministries, who passionately proclaims the love and freedom God offers to each person; Sister Miriam James Heidland, Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity, who speaks widely on the Theology of the Body, authentic love, and healing in Jesus; Ennie Hickman, Adore Ministries missionary and host of Steubenville Summer Youth Conferences; Father Christopher Martin, vocations director of the Archdiocese of St. Louis; and Jeremy Rivera, an award-winning speaker and writer, and national marketing director of FOCUS Missionaries.

Franciscan University of Steubenville is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
