Conference Information

Steubenville is more than the name of a conference, it’s a city in Ohio that is home to Franciscan University of Steubenville (FUS), a vibrant Catholic college rooted in the Franciscan tradition and dedicated to proclaiming Jesus Christ as “the Way, the Truth, and the Life.”

Franciscan University hosted its first Steubenville Youth Conference in 1976, when 1,000 youth and young adults gathered on the campus in Steubenville, Ohio, for a weekend of prayer, praise, and reflection. In the summer of 2013, more than 40,000 teens participated in 18 different youth conferences across North America – discovering the richness of the Catholic Church and encountering the truth of Jesus Christ in Word and Sacrament.

Steubenville Toronto will take place on campus at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) in Oshawa, ON. The conference begins July 28, and will continue until July 30. UOIT is located at 2000 Simcoe Street North, Oshawa, ON. For more information about the venue, please visit their website.

How do I register?

Group Leaders are responsible for registering all youth and chaperones for their respective group. Registration will only be done online where a group leader will be able to register a ‘block’ of spaces and then attach names of youth/chaperones to those slots later when the information is confirmed.
