The Franciscan University of Steubenville is a dynamic and authentically Catholic University located in eastern Ohio, close to the Pennsylvania border. Each summer, they host a number of youth conferences at their university and other universities around the United States. Our St. John’s Youth Group travels to this conference each summer and registration will soon be open for our group trip. We are anticipating attending this conference from June 26th-28th with a trip to Hershey Park on June 29th on our way home. We would love for you to join us on this trip if you are going to be graduating 8th-12th grades this upcoming summer. The Bob Rice band that provides the music for the conferences will be here in Bucks County for a Festival of Praise and Worship on Saturday, January 24th from 9:30-5pm.
