Steubenville NYC

July 20-22, 2018, Queens NY


The reviews are starting to come in on the 3-day Steubenville 2018 Youth Conference that was held at St. John’s University in Queens, NY from July 20th through July 22nd. From what we are hearing, it was FANTASTIC, with great music and a great “vibe.” We will be hearing from some of the 17 wonderful teens from our Collaborative who attended the Conference at all the Masses during this weekend and we are looking forward to hearing more about this amazing event from these wonderful young people.




“In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him.” – 1 John 4:9

This summer, nearly 2,000 Catholic teens will attend the Steubenville NYC Youth Conference and experience the joy of following Christ and experiencing His love REVEALED. Over 60,000 will attend a Steubenville conference in the United States this summer.

Where is it held?
Steubenville NYC will take place at the Carnesecca Arena on the campus of St. John’s University in Queens, New York. Only minutes from Manhattan by car, bus or train, the 105-acre Queens campus offers a traditional university environment in the world’s most dynamic city. SJU’s Queens campus features broad lawns, handsome stone buildings and ultramodern student residence halls. Combining urban excitement with suburban tranquility, the campus is located in a leafy, residential area of one of the five boroughs, or counties, that make up New York City. Conference participants will stay in dorms on campus. Meals will take place at dining halls on campus and housing will be in various dorms on campus.
