Twenty Steubenville Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio, will draw more than 45,000 high school students from across the country this summer, according to the Conferences’ website.
Since1975, Steubenville Conferences have served “to evangelize by inviting people toe ncounter Christ in a deeper, more intimate relationship with the Eucharist and sacrament of reconciliation,” according to a description. It continues:
Our mission is to call, empower, and equip Catholics to follow Christ as His disciples, serve the Church in a variety of ministries, and participate in the work of the New Evangelization. We seek to help all participants encounter the power and person of the Holy Spirit and allow His presence to renew, transform, and encourage their hearts. We want His grace to enkindle in them a deeper love for Jesus, His Church, and our brothers and sisters. We extend to our participants an invitation to strengthen their faith, to renew their minds and spirits, and to enjoy the fellowship of thousands of other Catholics who share a passion fo rChrist and His Church. Above all, we go forward with a fervent desire to spread His love and to work to build the Kingdom of God through prayer, service, and witness.
…These conferences are high-energy events featuring inspiring talks, dynamic worship, and profound encounters with Jesus Christ in the Eucharist and sacrament of reconciliation.
High school students are invited into a “life life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church” at Steubenville Conferences. This year, students can attend the Conference on the campus at Franciscan University of Steubenville, in Atlanta, Ga., or even in Canada!
