Steubenville Toronto: Once again this year the Steubenville conferences which started at the Franciscan University of Steubenville Ohio are hosting a youth conference in Toronto during the summer. Check out the Teaser Trailer for this year’s conference with the theme Belong based on the Gospel of John “See what love the Father has bestowed on us, that we may be called children of God.”
Registration can be done through the archdiocese
About the Youth Minister: I was born in Edmonton Alberta but grew up in the Morgan’s Grant area of Kanata North. As a child I went to mass at St Rémi parish where I was involved in the children’s liturgy, children’s choir and was an altar server. I attended Franco-Ouest French catholic high school from grade 7 to grade 12 during which time I served on the pastoral council, got involved as a participant and leader at the Holy Redeemer Youth Group and swam competitively until I graduated from their International Baccalaureate program. I stayed involved in the youth group as a volunteer and then worked part time running it while completing a degree in philosophy with the Dominican Friars downtown during which time I started getting involved in sacramental preparation for first Eucharist, first reconciliation and confirmation. Finally, I went to Alberta for three years to do a degree in education, staying involved in youth ministry and sacramental preparation at my home parish and working at Our Lady of Victory catholic summer camp where I was until a few days before I moved out here to start my job. I’m very excited to be here and to get to know the youth and the community.
Youth Ministry Vision: The Mission
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age. Matthew 28; 19-20
Although we are currently focusing our efforts on starting a youth group, I do believe that we should be striving to integrate the youth in all aspects of the parish life and community. In keeping with the theme of the Synod that took place this October on Young People, The Faith and Vocational Discernment, we should remember that as baptized and confirmed members of the Church – the Body of Christ – the youth all share in the same primary vocation and mission as we do. This shared mission, the imitation of Christ and the preparation for His coming must therefore include not only the efforts we make towards the youth but also the efforts they would make for us. This is a mission that our local church shares with the whole Catholic Church; a sign of what we are called to be, what we have the potential to be and what we will be in the splendor of the New Jerusalem.
