3nd Annual


February 10-March31

St. Marys, St. Philip Neri and Holy Rosary Catholic Youth are inviting you to participate in this year’s “Can Fundraiser” for Steubenville Youth Conferences. Attendee’s tickets are $320 so our teens can use all of the support they can get. Tickets are still available for teens grades 8-12. Some teens are humbly seeking full or partial sponsorship as well. If you would like to help our area youth attend this Christ filled event, we invite you to participate in the following ways:

Can/bottle donation locations

St. Philip Neri-Blue tiled room in the classroom wing

St. Mary- Vehicles with neon signs that say “can donation drop here” in their car window at any St. Mary mass. Teens name will be on the sign so you know who to inform.

Holy Rosary- In the back of the old convent(just inside the back door).

Donations will be picked up each week by teens.

Monetary donations

Checks may be to:  St. Philip Neri, Memo - Steubenville Youth trip
