Steubenville Atlantic Youth Conference

JULY 14, 2024

Last week, seven teenagers from our youth group, accompanied by their chaperones, embarked on an incredible adventure to Halifax. For five days, the youth participated in the Franciscan LEAD program, a Christ-centered, sacrament-soaked, and prayer-fueled immersion in Catholic teachings on leadership, evangelization, and discipleship. Following this formation, they attended the STEUBENVILLE Atlantic conference, where they had the opportunity to hear from world-renowned Catholic speakers, pray for each other, participate in adoration, and praise and worship. They also shared the profound ways God was working in their hearts with those around them. These seven days were truly life-changing. We are all returning to St. Finnan’s transformed and filled with the Holy Spirit, excited to share Christ’s love with the world!

In Christ, 


Last week some of our Youth Group had a beautiful experience in Halifax for Steubenville Atlantic. This ministry is growing so quick, and I truly couldn’t be more proud! – Fr. Jon

Please continue to pray for our youth as they prepare for the Steubenville Conference in Halifax, July 5th-7th. The week leading up to the conference there is also a LEAD camp offered to the youth.  LEAD stands for Leadership Evangelization and Discipleship.   We are so excited that our youth are willing to step out in faith to be challenged to become leaders in the parish.  Please consider supporting these youth as they will aim to raise $5000 dollars to cover the cost of the travel, LEAD camp and conference.  The youth will be sharing more about this opportunity next weekend and there will be a special collection to help them with the costs.
