The terms are simple, please save a spot now with a small $50 deposit, and your teen will have a spot reserved with us. You have until January 6 to receive a complete refund if you change your mind. By then we should know the official dates, and the final costs, and we should have some idea of the fundraising.

A Steubenville High School Youth Conference is a resource that addresses the needs of today’s Catholic youth. The conferences are organized on a national and regional level, with an exciting line-up of speakers, musicians, and presenters. The conferences will challenge the youth to stand firm in their faith, rely upon the awesome power of Jesus Christ who is their guide, friend, and Savior, and to show that faith to the world. A highlight of the weekend is the powerful time of Eucharistic Adoration. If your teens are beginning their personal walk with Christ, needing strength to continue the journey, or just ready to rejoice in the many blessings He has given, then this is the conference you are looking for!

What is a Steubenville Youth Conference? Watch this video from a previous year’s conference to find out:

SPACE IS LIMITED. WE MUST MAKE ARRANGEMENTS ASAP, EVEN THOUGH THE CONFERENCE IS IN 2014.  PLEASE ‘SAVE A SPOT’ FOR YOUR YOUTH TODAY.

Where: Steubenville, Ohio (about 4 hours from St. Marys)
When: TBD (June/July 2014)
How much: $50.00 ‘Save a Spot’.

The following is from last year and will soon be updated with this year’s figures:
Our goal with fundraising is to have families pay no more than 149.00 ‘out of pocket’ per attendee. Total cost of youth conference is approx 299.00. Those who pay 50.00 ‘Save a Spot’ will only have 100.00 more to go. This is based on fundraising goals. If we do not meet our fundraising goals, families should be prepared to pay a greater share of the 299.00 cost per attendee (although in past years our fundraising results have been very good.)

Sign up for the next Steubenville Youth Conference today.

Why?

1. Let’s do it now while it’s fresh on our minds.

2. It will help us to have a better sense of who might be going. This means we can arrange for transportation earlier, and to make other arrangements earlier. Good, early arrangements will make the trip even better.

3. Steubenville Youth Conferences are so amazing that we aim to sign up some more kids for the coming year. By having a group already in place, it will help to inspire other teens to say yes.

Early save a spots are really important. Something to keep in mind, this is “save a spot” with us here at the parish level.  No matter how hard we try it is always possible (though very unlikely) that the youth conference itself will be out of space, or that it might end up on an inconvenient date, or some other factor which makes it impossible for all or any of our “save a spot” people to attend. Also, at this early stage, we cannot know for sure if there will not be a price increase, and we don’t know what the dates are. Even so, we invite you to save a spot with us right away because it would be helpful to the whole effort. Truly, we would not do it if it would not be helpful. The terms are simple, please save a spot now with a small $50 deposit, and your teen will have a spot reserved with us. At this time, we anticipate  the cost @ $299, with the same 50%/50% out of pocket and fundraising mix, and approximately the same dates (within one to three weeks) as this year.

The goal is for this to be a well organized, well attended Steubenville Youth Conference for the teens of St. Marys and that means taking the first step… today!
