A special summer retreat for LIFE TEEN – Current 8th-12th graders

July 12-14, 2019

BELONG

“See what love the Father has bestowed on us,
that we may be called children of God.” -1 John 3:1

At the core of our being is a desire for meaningful connection and authentic relationship. We long to love and be loved, but how often do we just feel lonely?

As we search for ways to escape these feelings of isolation, there comes a small, quiet whisper that pierces through to the depths of our heart: “You are never alone, because you are Mine.”

This summer, over 50,000 Catholic teens across North America will attend one of 24 Steubenville Youth Conferences to encounter the God who calls us His sons and daughters. Come and experience His overwhelming love for you. You belong here.


Conference Cost – Deposit Amount: $50 due by January 15th

Rest of cost: TBA. They are giving us 5 free youth conference registrations, so we are going to base our cost on how many people sign up, so we can all share the cost.

($185 is the base fee set by the conference.)

 

Transportation Cost

We have estimated about $400 per 12 passenger van. Cost will be split among attendees unless we receive a donation.

 

Hotel Cost – To be determined – but we do get a discounted rate.

(This will be in addition to the Conference cost.)

Chaperones 
Randi Hom, our high school youth minister is leading this retreat. This will be her 16th Steubenville Conference and her 2nd time to the Atlanta Conference. We will need other adults to go with us. All adults must be Virtus trained and abide by the Decree on Child Protection.

Registration commitment is due by January 8th – no exceptions. Call Randi Hom to register at 513-594-1168.

 

We will be fundraising in order to make this happen and unless you can pay your entire cost, you must help fundraise for the group. If you register and then decide not to go, you are responsible for the cost of your spot.

More information will be given as we receive it. If you have any questions, please contact Randi Hom at 513-594-1168.

Heritage Dinner Cancelled

The Heritage Dinner scheduled for this Saturday, November 10th has been cancelled due to the low number of reservations. We will be calling those who made reservations and returning any pre-payments that were made.

U.S. Bishop’s Period of Prayer

We have beautiful models from the Bible of prayer and fasting in preparation for important work of renewal or deliverance.  In particular in the book of Esther, Esther and all the Jews of the town of Susa fasted from food and drink for three days before she approached the king to ask him to spare the Jewish people.  In the Acts of the Apostles, the entire Christian community at Antioch fasted and prayed to the Holy Spirit before choosing Barnabas and Paul to send on their first missionary journey.

Every year in November the United States bishops’ conference meets for their general assembly.  Given the gravity of the present moment where decisions need to be made regarding the tragedy of clergy abuse, the bishops – including Archbishop Schnurr and Bishop Binzer – have committed themselves to a week of fasting from November 4-11 in preparation for the assembly.  The bishops will still meet again in February specifically to consider these issues.  The bishops request your continued prayers.   They invite the lay faithful to join them in fasting.  A letter with more details from Archbishop Schnurr and Bishop Binzer is available below.
