Thousands of Catholic Teens. Hundreds of Priests. Endless Fun. Powerful Sacraments. Amazing Speakers. Incredible Music. Everything is bigger in Texas and Steubenville Lone Star is a BIG way for teens to experience Jesus and their Catholic faith.
This year's theme: ELEVATE: 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! Steubenville Lone Star is 1 of 25 Steubenville youth conferences - this summer, join over 50,000 other Catholic teens attending Steubenville Conferences and experience the joy of following Christ and being elevated by His love.

We do this through building.We build shelters and structures as well as friendship and faith with the people of Haiti. We give witness to Christ's love while at the same time experiencing that same love in the Haitians in a new and powerful way.

To be eligible to attend a St. Anthony Youth Ministry Summer Trip a teen MUST be registered in Life Teen. Confirmation, EDGE, or Faith Formation at St. Anthony's. Because spots are limited, not all teens are able to attend every trip. After a teen meets the minimum registration requirement (above), the following factors determine who is accepted and who is placed on a waitlist:
- Every trip requires a certain adult to teen gender specific ratio. Because of this, each trip will be allotted a certain number of male spots and female spots.
- For trips that include multiple grade levels, there will be a determined and limited number of spots for each grade on that trip.
- If there are more eligible (registered in St. Anthony's programs) teens that have placed an intent than there are spots for a particular gender or grade on a trip, placements will be made according to attendance at Life Nights, EDGE Nights or Faith Formation.
