Steubenville heads Northeast!

August 1, 2007
It's hard to believe it's August already, but many folks in Halifax are greeting the new month with great anticipation, as this weekend marks the Steubenville Atlantic conference. What's the Steubenville Atlantic conference? Let me cut and paste from the official website:
Steubenville Atlantic is a high school youth conference attended by over 1200 young Catholics co-sponsored by the Archdiocese of Halifax and the Franciscan University of Steubenville, OH. The conferences feature lively music, dynamic speakers, powerful liturgies, entertainment, and opportunities for prayer and fellowship.
This is the first time the Steubenville High School Youth Conference has been held outside the United States. Thirty years ago, a group of youth and young adults gathered on the Franciscan University Campus in Steubenville, Ohio for the first conference. Their purpose was to focus on bringing high school students into a life changing relationship with God. Last summer, 30,000 teens attended one of 14 youth conferences across the United States.
That happens all this weekend, August 3rd-5th, at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia . To find out more information on it, particularly registration information and a list of speakers, visit the official website by clicking HERE.
Also, stay tuned to Zoom on Friday and Tuesday of next week for updates, sights, and sounds, on the conference!
