Steubenville Informational Flyer 2019

Each summer, students from the Spires of Faith Cluster take a weekend trip to an area Steubenville Youth Conference.  It is an awesome opportunity to grow in our relationship with Christ, and in our identity as members of a truly catholic Church.

The conference weekend is about growing in our understanding on the gifts given to us at Baptism and sealed within us at Confirmation. It’s about hearing dynamic speakers instruct and challenge teens in prayer, chastity, service, and the power of the sacraments. Teens will discover that Christianity is not something that is just for the weak and timid; it is not a crutch; and it is not boring!

2019 Totus Tuus Registration

WHAT IS TOTUS TUUS?

The Totus Tuus parish summer catechetical program, a week-long “parish mission” for Catholic youth in the 1st through 12th grades, is dedicated to proclamation of the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, apologetics, Christian witness, the sacraments, Marian devotion, and Eucharistic worship.

Totus Tuus seeks to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion, and an openness to their vocation by challenging them to give themselves entirely to Jesus Christ through Mary and by continually strengthening their prayer lives in imitation of Her.

The Totus Tuus program has divided the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church into a six year cycle. Additionally, each summer is dedicated to the mysteries of the Rosary. In 2017, Totus Tuus will cover the Mystery of Salvation and the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary.

ONE SUNDAY A MONTH     8:30AM MASS AT BASILICA    9:30-11:00AM SESSION FOLLOWS IN XAVIER AUDITORIUM.  

Jesus poured out the Holy Spirit upon the apostles on Pentecost, strengthening them to go out and proclaim his works to the world. Like them, we are called to live as active, spirit-filled disciples of Jesus. In the Sacrament of Confirmation our bond with Jesus Christ and the Church is strengthened by the Holy Spirit. We open ourselves to cooperation with the ever-present Spirit in a life of ongoing conversion within the faith-filled community.

Students in their sophomore year of high school will participate in their year of intense preparation for confirmation. This is the second year of a two year process. The first year is completed through regular attendance at Faith Formation sessions on Wednesday nights or enrollment at Beckman Catholic High School. During the second year of preparation, there will be twelve hours of catechesis separate from the Faith Formation or religion classes held throughout the year taking place on Sunday mornings after 8:30 a.m. Mass in the Basilica of St. Francis Xavier. This entails reflective journaling, community service, a time of retreat, and a night of reflection with their sponsors. This will culminate in the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation in late Spring.
