Become a Prayer and Shareholder
This July, thirty-five youth and twelve chaperones from SVdP will have an opportunity to attend the Steubenville Mid-America Conference, a high-energy youth conference where thousands of teens are invited to encounter Jesus Christ through dynamic speakers, engaging music, the Sacraments, small group discussions, and fellowship with other teens. The conference is an outreach of Franciscan University in partnership with the St. Louis Archdiocesan Office of Youth Ministry. We will be travelling with hundreds of other youth from the Omaha Archdiocese.
Our young people are very excited to attend and we would like to ask your help. This year we have an opportunity for you to help, The Prayer and Shareholders Program. This program will help cover costs for attending this event. Teens have already paid their $50 deposit to attend the conference, but still have $290 each to pay for their full cost. Including chaperone costs, this is a total of $13,750. With your help, we would love to lower that cost as much as possible. There will be young people in the Common Area after Mass the weekend of March 30 & 31 available to speak with you and sign you up as a Prayer and Shareholder. In exchange for your financial support, you will receive a prayer card which we ask you to use to pray for our group as we prepare for this experience, as well as updates from our group as we travel to the Conference.
If you don’t catch us that weekend, you can participate in the Prayer and Shareholder Program by printing off and completing this response card and sending it to the Youth Formation Office with a check made payable to St. Vincent de Paul for $20 per share.
We greatly appreciate your support and your helping our youth continue to grow in their relationship with Christ.
