On opening day of the Steubenville North youth conference July 25, Bailey Lauret relaxed on the grass about a long touchdown pass from where he’ll be heading this fall: St. John Vianney Seminary, the college-level seminary on the campus of the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.

Lauret, 19, said he’s following in the footsteps of an SJV seminarian who was his small group leader when he attended a Steubenville conference in the past.

“I grew in faith at Steubenville,” explained Lauret, a member of St. Katherine Drexel parish in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

“I had more of an understanding what Eucharist was as the Body and Blood of Christ, and I understood more about my faith.”

Lauret was one of a group of 28 young people from his parish who, with hundreds of young people from across the upper Midwest, were attending the three days of talks, liturgies, workshops and opportunities for prayer, adoration and the sacrament of reconciliation at the Steubenville North conference. The conferences are organized by Bloomington, Minnesota, based Partnership for Youth.
