Steubenville Atlantic 2014

A group of nine high school students from our Diocese – 7 from Port au Choix, 1 from Deer Lake and 1 from Curling - participated in the Steubenville Atlantic 2014 Conference held from July 4 – 6 at Dalhousie University in Halifax. The Steubenville Youth Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, are a series of summer conferences across North America that bring thousands of teens and their leaders closer to Christ. The theme of this year’s conference was God is … (Isaiah 12:2). The young people attended sessions such as God is Real, God is in Media, God is in the Day to Day, and God is Writing Your Story. They participated in Mass and Eucharistic Adoration and many of them also took advantage of the opportunity to receive the sacrament of Reconciliation. They had a wonderful experience participating in a faith-filled weekend with hundreds of like-minded youth from across the Atlantic region and are already looking forward to their participation in Steubenville Atlantic 2015.
