The weekend of  July 4-6, 2014 more than 2,000 teenagers and youth ministers gathered at the old Toronto Maple Leaf Gardens for the first (hopefully annual)  Toronto Steubenville Conference!  The weekend included dynamic speakers from all over the United States, praise and worship music, Eucharistic Adoration, a Eucharistic procession around the entire arena, Mass, break out sessions, small groups and the sacrament of Reconciliation was available all weekend!  It was incredible to see so many young people praising God in song, receiving Him in the Eucharist at Mass, coming face to face with Him during the Eucharistic Procession and being forgiven by Him during confession.  The theme of the conference was, Isaiah 12:2 “behold God is my salvation, I will trust and will not be afraid…”
