Steubenville Atlantic is sponsored by Franciscan University of Steubenville and the Archdiocese of Halifax. Since 2007, they have worked together to provide a powerful weekend of evangelization for Catholic teens. Located on the campus of St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, Steubenville Atlantic provides a setting for developing a deeper relationship with Jesus through a weekend conference centered on Eucharistic Adoration and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
What are High School Youth Conferences?
These conferences are specialized to address the resources and needs of today’s Catholic youth, organized on a regional level. With an exciting lineup of speakers, musicians, and presenters, the High School Youth Conferences will challenge Catholic youth to stand firm in their faith, rely upon the awesome power of Jesus Christ who is their guide, friend, and Savior, and to show that faith to the world.
The Sacraments are the highlight of the weekend. Teens will join in two dynamic Eucharistic Liturgies during the weekend and will be given numerous opportunities to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. There are also powerful times of Eucharistic Exposition and Adoration. Many youth have come to a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit through this weekend.
If your teens are beginning their walk with Christ, needing strength to continue the journey, or just ready to rejoice in the many blessings He has given, then this is the conference for you
