Youth Ministry

Youth Ministry at St. John's is a ministry for and from our young people. Our Middle School Catholic Youth Ministry (M.S. CYM) is designed to minister to those in 6th-8th grades. Our High School Catholic Youth Ministry (CYM) is designed to meet the needs of 9th-12th graders.
 
The primary goals of our youth ministry are to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today, to draw young people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community, and to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person.

What is a Steubenville Youth Conference?

A Steubenville Catholic Youth conference is a weekend program for high school students, from incoming freshmen through just graduated seniors. It is authentically Catholic, an oasis from the clamor of the world, a place to connect with the God of the universe; it is inspirational, high energy, fun and funny. 

What does a conference weekend look like?

Participants arrive with their group and check-in mid-afternoon Friday. After dinner, the conference starts with a welcome from the Conference Host, who is part of the Ministry Team, a short teaching about worship and the Keynote address. The evening concludes with simple Eucharistic Adoration followed by time for the particpants to gather in their small groups and/or go to Confession.

Saturday begins with Mass and seperate Men's and Women's sessions that typically focuses on how to live a chaste life in the world today. Lunch starts the afternoon and happening simultaneously is another opportunity for small group time and/or Confession followed by the Senior and Graduated Senior workshop, an option of two workshops for all others and the afternoon Keynote.

Dinner, small group time and an opportunity for Confession begin Saturday evening. This is followed by the Keynote and, what is oftend escribed by teens and adults alike as the absolute highlight of the weekend, Eucharistic Holy Hour with formal processio throughout the entire arena. Again, at the conclusion, grops gather for their small group time and/or Confession.

Sunday morning starts with the Keynote address, which generally focuses on how to bring the things they have heard throughout the weekend into a personal and practical reality for their everyday life. The conference wraps-up with the closing Mass usually celebrated by the local Bishop.
