Steubenville Atlantic: July 7-9, 2023


Steubenville Atlantic is happening July 7 to 9, 2023 at Dalhousie University – and we’re excited!

This is the 15th in-person Steubenville Atlantic youth conference!  Last year we welcomed over 300 young people and youth leaders to experience a weekend like no other. It is a unique chance to encounter Christ in a way that changes lives.

Frances Burton and Patricia Barron from Holy Redeemer Parish, Whitney Pier will be leading a group of young people this year from our diocese.  If you are interested in attending Steubenville Atlantic please contact Frances Burton at notes.frances@icloud.com.

For more information visit the Steubenville Atlantic conference page 
or contact Steubenville Project Coordinator: Bradley VanDam at bvandam@halifaxyarmouth.org or (902) 429-9800 ext 311.


Ways to support this youth conference:

·    Pray! Pray for the conference organizers, the ministry team,  and the youth and youth leaders who will attend.

·    Invite! Do you have a child, grandchild, niece, nephew, cousin, friend who is between the ages of 14-18 who’s faith you want to grow?  Invite them to go to the conference!

·    Donate! Running a conference of this size takes much effort and many resources. 

This year’s theme is Refuge based on Matthew 11.28: Come to me , all you who labour and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Between  school, friends, family responsibilities, and maybe a part-time job  – plus so many other things! – we think this year’s theme will resonate with many young people.  Check out the Steubenville promo video here.
