Steubenville Toronto Day 1

July 5, 2014
Steubenville Toronto kicked off early yesterday evening with over 2300 teens and 200 plus volunteers.
As conference organizers ran around with earpieces looking like the newest member of the Secret Service, teens shuffled into the Mattamy Athletic Centre, ecstatic and excited to begin the weekend.
Our Salt + Light production team arrived bright and early(ish) to begin setting up for our broadcast and live stream, but we hit a few roadblocks- they wouldn’t let us unload right away!
But eventually we made it inside and began to set up to prepare for our broadcast!
The evening began with the Friday opening music session led by Ike Ndolo!
And Host Bob Rice introduced us to the rest of the ministry team- Mary Bielski, Michael Gomer, Jackie Francois (and baby) and Fr. Dave Pivonka, who blesses all the teens, volunteers and everyone involved with #SteubieTO!
To cap off the night, #SteubieTO is paid a special visit by none other than our Lord Jesus Christ through Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
God’s presence was so powerful that night that the confession line went on out the door! Over 40 priests were present that night to celebrate reconciliation with the youth at #SteubieTO
At the end of the evening, the teens went home with tired bodies and hopeful hearts. Come back tomorrow to see what Saturday has in store for #SteubieTO!
