STEUBENVILLE MID-AMERICA CONFERENCE (WEEK 1)
JULY 14-16, 2017
The Steubenville Youth Conference is a three-day experience consisting of music, keynote speakers, small group time, breakout sessions, Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, fellowship, and fun!
The majority of the conference takes place in a large-group setting, but teens will also spend time in small groups of 7-8 people of the same gender with at least one adult leader. Some groups may also have a high school-aged junior leader.
Youth participating with their parish youth ministry will meet in small groups together. If youth are not participating with a parish, they will be placed in a small group with youth from other area parishes.
Cost: $290 per person (youth and adult leaders)
- Includes conference registration fee, dorm housing, meals, transportation, and group t-shirt
- Priests and religious attend for free
Parish groups and individual teens will attend from three main hubs, which also serve as the locations for bus departure:
- Columbus Coordinator: Belinda Keiter, firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-564-7151
- Norfolk Coordinator: Marilyn Kathol, email@example.com or 402-371-2621
- Omaha Coordinator: Beth Carlson, firstname.lastname@example.org or 402-557-5610
Parish Group Registration
Teens should register through their parish if the parish is taking a group. Parish leaders will request the number of spots needed for their group (including adults) and collect paper registration forms from all their participants. The deadline is Friday, February 3rd for requesting spots with the Archdiocesan contingency, so please contact your parish youth minister now for materials.
Individual Youth Registration
We continue to welcome and encourage teens without a parish group to attend the conference! Each hub will reserve a number of spots for individual teens to attend, but they will be limited after Friday, February 3rd. Please contact your hub coordinator directly for additional information and registration materials.
Parishes are responsible for paying a $50.00 per person, non-refundable deposit for all spots reserved (Friday, February 3rd). The deposit is non-refundable even if another parish is capable of filling the dropped spots.
Parishes are responsible for paying the remaining balance ($240 per person) for all spots retained after the drop/add deadline on Wednesday, April 19th. Parishes may make substitutions up until the registration deadline (Friday, May 19th).
Teens not attending with a parish group please contact your hub coordinator for refund information.
Please contact your hub coordinator for Archdiocesan scholarship information. The deadline for submitting applications is Friday, March 31st.
