The Steubenville Conferences are a series of 23 conferences across North America that help over 55,000 teens encounter the love of Christ every summer.  These conferences are an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, a vibrant Catholic university that has embraced the call of Christ to its patron, St. Francis of Assisi, to "Go, and rebuild my Church."  Their mission is to build the Church by inviting teens into a life-changing relationship with Jesus and challenging them to embrace the heart and mission of the Catholic Church by following Jesus as a disciple.  With dynamic speakers who instruct and challenge teens in all facets of their lives, vibrant praise and worship time, and grace through the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist, Catholic teens are able to laugh, cry, sing, pray, discern, be encouraged, and be healed.
