Steubenville Conference 2017: July 28th-30th

"From His throne in heaven to the depths of your heart, these words of Jesus are an invitation for you to receive the new life that He alone can give. He is longing to elevate your life above the things of this world – to help you overcome fear, anxiety, confusion and doubt. He wants to break the things that hold you down and give you freedom from sin. He is calling you to follow Him and enter into a transforming experience with His love, grace, and mercy! He can make you new! This summer, join over 50,000 other Catholic teens at one of our 25 youth conferences and experience the joy of following Christ and being elevated by His love." (-taken from

Extreme Faith Camp 2017: June 26th-30th (Pre-Camp Leadership Retreat June 24th-26th)

Extreme Faith Camp is a week-long camp for youth currently in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade (and 9th-12th grade youth may come and serve on the leadership team!) where we seek to encounter the one, true, and living God. Surrounded by the beauty of nature and saturated in the beauty of our rich Catholic Tradition, Extreme Faith Camp is certainly a life-changing experience. This year, St. Henry’s is coming together with four other parishes to put on this week of EFC. With both old and new friends you are sure to enjoy all the fun activities, including large-group field games, 9-square-in-the-air, gaga ball, a dance with a live DJ, swimming, canoeing, and wacky Olympics. You will also grow in your faith through bible-studies, challenging talks, small group sharing and discussion, the Sacrament of Confession, daily Mass, and Eucharistic Adoration. We invite you to come to EFC and encounter Christ who is the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE!
