Dear High School Families,
We are excited about the opportunity to go to Steubenville, OH for the Steubenville Conference at Franciscan University July 10-12, 2020. This is open to students going into 9th grade through 12th grade. This is an opportunity for your teen to be surrounded by thousands of other teens worshiping together by listening to some Catholic speakers, having time for adoration, music and Mass. This is a life transforming opportunity for your teens. Below are a couple of links to the Steubenville Conference sites and you can find samples of Steubenville talks on YouTube. As of right now possible chaperones are Wendy Gamache, David Gamache, and Kathy Blake. All chaperones must be VIRTUS trained.
Registration is now open and we would like to be registered as a group by the end of January. Please let us know as soon as possible if your teen will be attending as we will be asked to put a deposit down at registration. We are asking for a deposit of $25 from you to reserve your child’s spot. The total cost for the conference is $295 per person. This covers the bus, snacks and water on the bus, conference cost, as well as food and lodging at Franciscan University. We have already begun fundraising and will continue to do so into June if needed to keep the cost down for everyone. As you may know, we’ve done a few bottle drives and plan to do more. We also will do a basket raffle and at least one other fundraiser besides the bottle drives. Last year due to generous donations and our fundraising efforts everyone that went, went for free. Those who participate in the fundraisers will be credited for their efforts.
We hope you prayerfully consider sending your teen to Steubenville this summer!
