Steubenville Youth Conference


Summer 2020 - Nearly 40,000 high school students will gather at 19 conferences in 12 different states and Canada this summer to experience the joy of living their Catholic faith.  We will be attending the Conference in Steubenville, OH, the weekend of July 10-12.

All St. Mary youth in grades 8 through high school seniors are invited  to take one step deeper in their faith this summer.  Wherever you are at in your faith: Come experience the immeasurable love that God has for you in a weekend packed with the best Catholic youth speakers in the nation, music, Eucharistic Adoration, thousands of other Catholic teens, new friendships, the sacrament of reconciliation, and authentic, invincible joy.  


"This conference was a big game-changer for me, for my whole life - everything, really.  My Mom signed me up without me knowing, and then dropped me off as the bus was leaving.  I was so mad at her.  The last thing I wanted to do was to go on some 'religious retreat'.  48 hours later, after coming home off the bus after the Conference, there was nothing I could've done for or said to my Mom to express how grateful I was for having gone on this trip.  I know Jesus Christ now, I know His love for me,  I know how much I'm worth to Him.  I honestly can't wait to go back next year." - Youth Conference Participant

"The Steubenville Conferences changed my heart. I realized the importance of growing in my relationship with God, on my own time, through prayer.  That is what gives us the strength to share our love of God with others." - Youth Conference Partcipant

"The Conference allowed me to  experience Christ for the first time.  Throughout the weekend I experienced Him, and all the love and grace He has for me and for everyone else.  Because of the conference I have become more devoted to Christ and fallen deeper in love with my faith."-Youth Conference Participant

Great music, speakers, dancing, FUN!
