The Steubenville Youth Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, are a series of 24 conferences across North America that help teens encounter the love of Christ every summer.

“Can you pray for me?” I remember getting that text from my best friend Austin one night. There was a sense of vulnerability and authenticity that came with it, as he was eager to open up his heart to me about a struggle he was facing. Of course, sleep deprived, […]
I was barely making it through Lent, desperate for the moment I’d get back whatever I’d given up as soon as Easter Sunday morning hit, without thinking of what was going on during Lent.
It felt uncomfortable sitting in silence before the Lord for the first time. I questioned whether I was even praying right or if God could even hear me.
How often do you take the people that you sit next to at Mass for granted? Not quite sure what I mean? Picture this: you wake up on Sunday morning, and end up feeling extremely tired. You want to go back to sleep, but your family is going to Mass. […]
