“Steubenville renewed my faith and sense of belonging to the Church and to Christ.” –Samantha
This summer marked our 10th Steubenville Atlantic conference organized by the Archdiocese of Halifax-Yarmouth. During this time the conference has served almost 7,000 young people and chaperones (6,968) and donated $14,429 to Chalice in support of youth-serving community projects around the globe. The effect of the conference over such a long period has borne many spiritual fruits, through deeper conversion to Christ, vocations to married life and religious life, leaders in ministry, and leaders in the world. In a time when many parishes ask “what can we do for our young people?” the Steubenville Atlantic conference has proven to be one way in which Church can support the work of parents and parishes in forming young disciples of Jesus Christ. Steubenville Atlantic is part of a network of 24 conferences done in partnership with Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, which serve over 40,000 young people annually.
