Prayer Partners for Steubenville

Would you join us in praying for our teens traveling to Steubenville for the Summer Youth Conference this June? We would love your prayers for our openness to the Lord working in our lives and we would love to pray for you in return. If you would like to become a prayer partner and have the name of a specific teen to pray for, please contact Maria Parker and she will provide you with the rst name of one of our teens. She will then ask to have a teen pray for you. We can grow closer as a community by praying for one another and our intentions. Thank you for your prayerful consideration! Our group is attending the 2016 Steubenville Conference at the Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio this summer. The theme is “Thirst” and draws from the scripture passage from Romans 5:8 which reads, “But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.” The Conference is a dynamic opportunity to grow in relationship with God and others and then bring that back here to our parish family. We will be traveling to Steubenville from June 24-27, 2016 and visiting Hershey Park on the way home. The trip is open to all youth who are graduating 8th grade through high school this year.
