Steubenville Conference 2017
Our annual trip out to Steubenville, Ohio for the 2017 Steubenville Conference begins on Friday, June 23rd and our teens are so excited! Thank you for all of your support throughout the year, both prayerfully and financially, providing for our teens to have a beautiful experience with the Lord and their peers. Many continue to ask how they can help or engage more in this experience with us. So, as we enter the final homestretch, we wanted to identify areas where we would gratefully welcome your help as our fellow parishioners:
1. Please pray for our teens and chaperones attending this summer (53 of us in total), and contact Maria if you would like to be partnered with a teen to speci cally pray for. This teen, in turn, would also pray for you and your intentions. This is an awesome partnership!
2. Reach out to Maria if you have any speci c prayer intentions that we as a group can bring to the Steubenville Conference and lift up in prayer together, for you.
3. Donations can be given towards some of our teens attending to help provide a more affordable trip. If you feel called to provide a nancial sponsorship of $25, $50, $100 or more towards our youth working hard to attend, please reach out to Maria directly or send donations to Maria Parker at the Parish Of ce Building made payable to “St. John the Evangelist” (The cost of the trip is $450 per person and many teens work hard to fundraise as much as they can to make it more affordable to attend). 4. Cases of water and individually packaged snacks would be graciously received for the group to take with us out to Steubenville for the weekend retreat.
