Steubenville East High School Conference
Best. Weekend. Ever!  July 14-16, 2017
For teens entering 9-12th grades in the fall & 2017 HS grads
Over 40,000 teens attend Steubenville Youth Conferences across the USA each year.  Steubenville is more than the name of a conference. It is an experience that inspires teens to connect, unite, and grow. 
This year's theme is  "Elevate"..."Behold, I make all things new." Revelation 21:5
From His throne in heaven to the depths of your heart, these words of Jesus are an invitation for you to receive the new life that He alone can give. He is longing to elevate your life above the things of this world - to help you overcome fear, anxiety, confusion and doubt.

Dive into the Steubenville East weekend with over 3,000 high school Catholics, inspiring music, challenging talks, Mass, Adoration and an overwhelmingly elevating experience.  Registration is open now, and will close and/or sell out soon.  Reserve your spot on The Rock's team today with a $50 deposit, total cost is $250 including transport, chaperone, lodging, meals, and tshirt.
