Steubenville Northwest Summer Conference
Steubenville Northwest offers dynamic speakers who instruct and challenge teens in all facets of their lives. The 2019 theme is "Belong" from 1 John 3:1: “See what love the Father has bestowed on us, that we may be called children of God.”
SNW offers vibrant praise and worship time, and grace through the sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist. Processional Eucharistic Adoration is a highlight of the conference and will be a focus of youth group this year. SNW offers a venue where more 1,000 Catholic teens are able to laugh, cry, sing, pray, discern, be encouraged, and be healed. Steubenville Northwest is a weekend for those just coming to know God, and for those yearning for a deeper relationship as a disciple of Christ.
Totus Tuus (Latin for Totally Yours) is a week-long summer youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. Totus Tuus infuses catechetical instruction with authenticity and FUN!

Preparation for Confirmation at SJA is a journey to encounter the person and mission of Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus invites us into a personal, active relationship with him. Jesus gave us the Catholic Church to support us in our faith journey. The sacrament of Confirmation is the full outpouring of the gift of the Holy Spirit which was originally given to us in the waters of Baptism.
