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.”

The Steubenville Youth Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, are a series of 25 conferences across North America that help teens encounter the love of Christ every summer. Our mission is to build the Church by evangelizing, equipping, and empowering God’s children to become radical and joyful disciples. For more information about the Steubenville Conferences, visit steubenvilleconferences.com.

Steubenville Toronto will take place on campus at Ontario Tech University (formerly UOIT) in Oshawa, ON. The 2022 conference begins July 15, and will continue until July 17. Ontario Tech is located at 2000 Simcoe Street North, Oshawa, ON. For more information about the venue, please visit their website.

“Restore us, O God; let your face shine, that we may be saved.” -Psalm 80:3

Can you remember a time when you weren’t anxious about something? The chaos of our lives can overwhelm us and make it difficult to see anything other than confusion and brokenness.

And somewhere along the way, we’ve forgotten who we are – and, more importantly, who God is.

We have a good, loving Father in heaven who created us to share in His glory, to see everything and everyone with His eyes. His greatest desire is to raise us up out of our fear and anxiety and restore us to the hope and abundant life that only He can give.

This summer, over 50,000 Catholic teens across North America will attend one of 25 Steubenville Youth Conferences to encounter the God who calls us out of darkness and into his marvelous light. Lift your eyes to the glory of God. Be restored.

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.
