Thousands of youth gathered June 24-26 at Crowne Plaza DIA for the annual Steubenville of the Rockies youth conference. The theme for this year’s conference was “Thirst,” and featured talks by several speakers, including Sarah Swafford, Jason Evert and Brian Greenfield. Youth representing parishes and dioceses from all over the country were in attendance, and were challenged throughout the weekend to grow in their own faith. A special Mass said by Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila on Saturday morning was one of the highlights of the weekend (listen to it here), as was the powerful Saturday night Eucharistic adoration holy hour. Denver Catholic was at the conference to capture these two special moments of the weekend.
