Held in Springfield, MO
Registration Opens February 8, 2018!
Individual Registration is now open! 

Please see above note and visit the link to complete your personal Individual Registration if you have already been registered as part of the Immaculate Conception group.  Teens will need parents to complete a portion of the registration.

Students who attend YG meetings and help out at parish and YG events can earn points towards attendance.  Students who participate in fund raisers can earn points towards attendance.  It is our goal to offer enough opportunities that all of our regular Youth Group members should be able to attend Steubenville for free.  Youth who do not earn enough points may still attend with our group; however, they will be expected to pay all or at least some of their own way!

As of April 23rd, 3 adults and 6 teens are registered to attend.  Late registrations will be subject to event and room availability.  Please let us know as soon as possible!

Thank you Tony Barry and Candi Barks for agreeing to attend as chaperones for our Steubenville STL trip.  Brenda Carrow is serving as Group Leader and will also be attending.

Service Activity
DIY Lawn Games!  Youth Group has been discussing various lawn games that we can build and put together, and we have begun construction. Finished games will be available for Youth Group use and also provided to the parish for use at special events.  Youth are asked to look around their homes for items that can be repurposed for use as part of a DIY game.  Please discuss with parents.  All ideas/suggestions welcome!
