Once again an excited group of teens and their chaperones left the St. Francis parking lot, this past July, to embark on an exciting weekend adventure: Steubenville East!!
“The mission of the Steubenville Conferences is to invite young people into a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ through the Sacraments of the Church and the power of the Holy Spirit. This experience of Christ’s love opens their hearts to become His disciples and embrace the mission of the Catholic Church.” – Official Website of Steubenville Conferences
Through much hard work from our teens and adult chaperones, and through the generous support of parishioners; 36 of our youth and their chaperones made their way to Rhode Island to attend the annual Steubenville East Conference. This year’s theme was “GOD is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; for the Lord is my strength and my song and he has become my salvation.”-Isaiah 12:2
Some remarks from the teens:
God is ……# AWESOME – Nicole Valedon
We are here for one reason, to open up to God; we are ready to pay attention. – Angid Lopez
They returned uplifted, inspired, and ready to be Church – bringing Christ’s Love to others! May their inspiration, Love, and Spirit be infectious to all they encounter!
Thank you, always, for all you do to support this amazing, God-filled weekend, and our amazing, God-filled teens!!
You are instrumental in making so many of the fundraisers (for this event and others throughout the year) a success with your donations, support, and prayers. God Bless you!
