CONVERSION

“I left Steubenville with the relief and joy of having a couple of years’ worth of self-recrimination, self-doubt, and fear of having failed… all washed away, all made pure, all accepted as an offering to God. Tears of relief, tears of joy. Truly a healing experience.”

INSPIRATION

“It’s amazing to experience the beauty of the web woven for us by these deeply prayerful Scripture scholars. We are convinced again without even realizing it that the truth of Scripture is satisfying, accessible, and searching for us.”

FELLOWSHIP

“I am excited to begin a new school year teaching the faith drawing on the experiences gained at the St. John Bosco Conference. It was a delight to engage in both the liturgy and in conversation with other Catholics who are on fire with the faith and the work of evangelization. I can’t wait to come back next year!”

SACRAMENTS

“I hadn’t been to Confession in two years because I was so afraid that I couldn’t be forgiven, and I couldn’t face what I did. The first night [of the conference], I went straight to Confession after adoration. The first thing the priest told me was, ‘Welcome Home.’ I’ve never felt like I belonged anywhere until that moment.”

ADORATION

“I had a tremendous experience! Brought to tears with joy during [eucharistic] adoration … This conference was all-around nourishment to me. I left feeling refreshed in my faith and energized to go out and spread the faith.
