“Steubenville Encounter isn’t just a youth conference with adults in attendance. Instead, it is an event that is intentionally tailored with you in mind. You’ll still find the beloved Franciscan charism and worship, but with a message and approach that is meant for you. Bring your friends and even your family – you won’t regret it.”

– Katie Hartfiel, Catholic Speaker and Author

“Bring your friends and even your family…”

“Franciscan University’s Steubenville Youth Conferences have been the ‘gold standard’ for Catholic youth conferences around the United States and Canada. My adult volunteers would always return from Steubenville Youth Conferences more on fire than the teens, so I was so excited to hear that they were going to tailor a new conference toward adults. You won’t want to miss it!”
