Priests are a wonderful witness and their presence helps young people grow in their faith and to potentially consider a vocation to the priesthood and religious life. In addition, we are in need of priests to assist in administering the Sacrament of Reconciliation throughout the weekend of the conference and at other liturgical celebrations.
As such, Priests are welcome to attend for FREE. We encourage all groups to invite and bring their parish priest(s) with them.
Accommodations have been arranged for the clergy. Please identify in the Clergy Application Form which nights you require accommodations and you will be contacted by the appropriate Steubenville Toronto representative. Clergy are responsible for their own transportation between the conference site and our accommodation location, however if this is problematic please contact us and we will do our best to help!
If you are not attending the conference with a specific parish/group but still desire to serve conference participants we encourage you to please fill out the Clergy Application Form to indicate your availability during the conference.
Note: Priests are unable to serve as chaperones at Steubenville Toronto. Since priests are going to be helping with confessions and at Mass, they will be unable to be present with the group at all times which is a requirement to be a chaperone.
Bishops are a wonderful witness to our youth and we are always delighted when informed that one is coming to Steubenville Toronto.
Bishops are invited to hear confessions, con-celebrate at Holy Mass and participate in the program. Of course, all Bishops are welcome to attend for FREE.
Many of the youth attending Steubenville Toronto have never had the experience of meeting or even seeing their Bishop. This being the case, we ask our Bishops to wear their Bishop's Cassocks so as to make their presence at the conference as visible as possible. This request is by no means a requirement and Bishops may dress in whatever ecclesial garb they are most comfortable in.
It is always a source of great joy when Religious Sisters are present for our conference.
Most youth attending Steubenville Toronto have never had the experience of interacting with a Religous Sister. This being the case, we ask Sisters to wear their habits so as to make their presence at the conference as visible as possible.
The cost for a Sister to attend the conference is $50 per person.
