Youth Conference in Springfield, MO

July 11 -
July 12:

Sr. Rebecca, Emily, and Sr. Irene Regina (from our community in Chicago) went to the Steubenville youth conference in Springfield, Missouri. More than 2,000 young people attended from Missouri but also from places like Texas and Minnesota! There were also twenty-five priests there. We helped Sr. Irene to prepare the bookstore before the conference. During the weekend, Sr. Rebecca and Emily, and some sisters from other communities, helped to guide the young people to the talks and times of prayer. A very powerful part of the weekend for the youth was Eucharistic Adoration on Friday and Saturday nights. We had many opportunities to speak with the young people and share about our life and our community. It was great to be with them and to see how excited they are about God in their lives!
P.S. Pray for us next weekend as we go to a second Steubenville youth conference!
