THIRST

Just before He died on the cross, Jesus said “I thirst.” Assuming He wanted something to drink, the soldier standing guard by the cross gave Our Lord a sponge dipped in bitter wine. But Jesus wasn’t thirsting for something to drink. Instead, His statement should be interpreted as “I thirst… for souls!”

Jesus is thirsty for your soul – at the 2016 Steubenville Youth Conferences, we will all have an opportunity to give our souls to Christ, who so desperately thirsts for them.

WHAT TEENS ARE SAYING
“The Steubenville Conferences changed my heart. I realized the importance of growing my relationship with God on my own time, through prayer. That is what gives us strength to share our love for God with others.”Youth Conference Participant
“Steubenville helped me in my discerning the priesthood. I have grown so much this weekend, and each time I go I fall in love with Christ all over again. During Saturday adoration I feel like Jesus is walking the aisles quietly speaking to me.”Youth Conference Participant
“This conference allowed me to see 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
“The room came to life with Christ. I saw my faith in a new light. I began to realized what it means to be a Catholic teenager in this day and age, and what a true and beautiful gift it really is.”Youth Conference Participant
OUR MINISTRY TEAM

We are blessed to have some of the most talented ministers serving in the Church today as part of our team.
Each one has been chosen for their love of Jesus and their ability to share that love with teens.

FRANCISCAN LEAD

Franciscan LEAD is a five-day, Christ-centered, sacrament-soaked, prayer fueled immersion in Catholic teachings on leadership, evangelization, and discipleship inspired by the life and witness of St. Francis of Assisi. Our leadership philosophy is based on the foundation that youth leadership flows from a personal relationship with Christ. Therefore, we first give teens the tools to grow closer in their relationship with Jesus and then give them the essentials for servant leadership and evangelization.
