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. Each summer, Life Teen hosts several Steubenville Youth Conferences with the hopes of strengthening and inspiring teens and youth groups in their collective journeys to Christ.
Life Teen’s Catholic Youth Ministry Convention has become America’s premier event for everyone involved in parish youth ministry. Why? Maybe it’s because we are different. We believe in practical, comprehensive youth ministry training. But we don’t think that’s enough. That’s why we incorporate elements of a spiritual retreat into the training convention. Because youth ministry isn’t about what you know, it’s Who you know.
There are many women who are a vital part of salvation history and their stories are critical parts of Sacred Scripture. This scriptural devotion will inspire young women to raise their heads along with Mary, Martha, Lydia, and Esther and look into the eyes of Jesus, the God who loves deeply and perfectly.
You are going to make thousands of decisions today and one of them might change your life. Are you confident that what you want and what God want are the same thing? Don’t leave it up to chance - leave it in the hands of the Holy Spirit.

As we face times of uncertainty, we know that connection to the Eucharistic liturgy is critical. A close second is community. We recognize that there are circumstances where a parish may have chosen to or be required to suspend any ministry outside of the Mass. It is always a gift and blessing to receive the Eucharist and attend Mass. Where there are opportunities for additional worship and ministry, we should seek to take advantage of those opportunities.
This resource provides three session outlines for worship and community that link up to a Sunday liturgy. By attaching this additional ministry to a Sunday Mass, it allows a community to gather where they may not be able to gather otherwise and to do so in the larger flow of a Sunday experience.
This is a great option for parishes that have suspended ministry outside of the Mass, but can be utilized by any parish in any circumstance. Gathering your community for an XLT following the Mass or holding a penance service prior to Mass are great ways to elevate the “Sunday experience” of your parishioners and draw people of all ages together.
In that way, this is not a “COVID19 pandemic” resource, though it has immediate application in that context but another tool you can utilize in your ministry to help reach teenagers, families, and your parish community.
