Conferences & Retreats

Steubenville of the Rockies

Steubenville of the Rockies

July 2-4

Registration Opens January 19th

Greetings from the Rocky Mountain State!

We are very excited to be hosting the Steubenville of the Rockies Conference for the 24th year in a row!

With an exciting lineup of speakers, musicians, and presenters, this conference will challenge Catholic youth to not just learn about the Holy Spirit, but to get to know Him as the living presence of God in our lives. We will get to contemplate the amazing love of Jesus and how He willingly gave up His throne in heaven in order to become a man.

The Sacraments are the highlight of the weekend. Teens will join in two dynamic Eucharistic Liturgies during the weekend and will be given numerous opportunities to participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. There is also a powerful time of Eucharistic Exposition and Adoration. Many youth have come to a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit through this weekend.

If your teens are beginning their walk with Christ, needing strength to continue the journey, or just ready to rejoice in the many blessings He has given, then this is the conference for you!

We had an incredible time playing host to over 2500 youth last year and are anticipating another large crowd this summer. We are looking forward to hosting your group here in the beautiful state of Colorado! If you have questions regarding the registration materials, please feel free to contact us.

Finally, we ask that you keep the conference preparations, participants, and staff in your prayers.

Peace in Christ Jesus,

Office of Evangelization & Family Life Ministries
Archdiocese of Denver

Mercy Squad is for young adults ages 18-25 years of age. Mercy Squad is a 4-day young adult service opportunity beginning with a day retreat the Thursday prior to the conference weekend.

“Restore us, O God; let your face shine, that we may be saved.” -Psalm 80:3 RSV

 Can you remember a time when you weren’t anxious about something? The chaos of our lives can overwhelm us and make it difficult to see anything other than confusion and brokenness.

 And somewhere along the way, we’ve forgotten who we are – and, more importantly, who God is.

 We have a good, loving Father in heaven who created us to share in His glory, to see everything and everyone with His eyes. His greatest desire is to raise us up out of our fear and anxiety and restore us to the hope and abundant life that only He can give.

 This summer, over 50,000 Catholic teens across North America will attend one of 25 Steubenville Youth Conferences to encounter the God who calls us out of darkness and into his marvelous light. Lift your eyes to the glory of God. Be restored.
