Steubenville is a weekend youth conference sponsored by Franciscan University. It is an awesome experience and opportunity to grow in the faith. This year our parish will be traveling with the Omaha Archdiocese (via the Norfolk Hub) to the Mid-America Steubenville Conference in St. Louis during the weekend of July 8-10. All incoming freshman through graduated seniors (current 8-12 graders) are invited to attend this wonderful conference. The total cost is $270 and scholarships are available. If you or your student would like to go, a spot needs to be reserved for them through the Archdiocese, with a $50 non-refundable deposit. Please email Cassie Guenther or phone 402-380-3046 to reserve your spot and get the registration process started. A sign-up sheet is also available at the GACC high school office and the parish office. Deadline for reservation is January 25. Hope to see you in St. Louis for this awesome spiritual opportunity!
