SERVING AT STEUBENVILLE SoCal?
The Steubenville SoCal Youth Conferences are just around the corner, July 6- 8, 2018 (Steubenville OC) and July 27-29, 2018 (Steubenville San Diego), and your generous help as a volunteer is cherished. This summer we anticipate hosting 7,000 teens, young adults, and youth leaders between the OC and San Diego Conferences! Imagine thousands of young people, our teens, praying, worshiping, celebrating their faith in their own authentic and energetic way, learning how to live as a Catholic Christian in a secular world, supporting one another in community on their faith journey, and celebrating the Holy Mass! The conferences are full of joyful and engaging music, amazing speakers, the sacraments, and the energy and fellowship of teens. All of this is made possible by hundreds of adults joining together in love to support and serve these young people.
There are many ways to help: ushering, hospitality, registration, prayer ministers, first-aid assistance, security, transportation, set-up and removal of the stage design, Gift Shop assistants and more. This year, we are using an on-line system to better serve our volunteers. Volunteers need to attend ONLY ONE of the scheduled meetings.

This year’s theme is “REVEALED” based on 1 John 4:9, “In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him.”
We live in a world where there are voices shouting at us from all sides, trying to tell us who we are and who we aren’t, who we should be and who we shouldn’t be. If we pay too much attention to these voices, it won’t be long before we forget our true identity altogether.
But amidst all the noise is our loving Father, who wants to make Himself known to us and speak truth about who we are. God’s love is deeper and His plan for our lives is greater than anything the world has to offer – will we allow Him to reveal it to us?– at the 2018 Steubenville SoCal Youth Conferences, we will all have an opportunity to give our souls to Christ, who so desperately thirsts for them. As Christ reigns in our hearts, let’s join together to help our teens see that real joy is found in our Lord!
