.- According to a recent press release, the Franciscan University of Steubenville is offering another series of exciting and spiritually refreshing Catholic conferences this summer.

The overall theme of the seven summer sessions is "Come, All Who Are Thirsty".

This year's lineup features dozens of well-known speakers, scholars and Church leaders, including Bishop Kevin Rhoades of Harrisburg and Bishop Sam Jacobs of Houma-Thibodaux.

Some of the speakers include: Scripture scholar Fr. Thomas Acklin, OSB; Fr. Benedict Groeschel, founder of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal; EWTN host Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ; author and speaker Jeff Cavins; and Scott Hahn.

The Catholic Charismatic Conference, June 8-10, is focused on helping young adults discover the power of the Holy Spirit. It will feature internationally known charismatic speaker Sr. Briege McKenna, OSC, among the speakers.

The conferences include:
June 1-3: Young Adults: "Becoming a C-4 Catholic"
June 8-10: Catholic Charismatic: "A New Pentecost for a New Evangelization"
June 11-15: Priests, Deacons, Seminarians: "Stir Into Flame the Gift You Received"
July 10-12: Religious Sisters: "Prayer and Healing for Yourself and Others"
July 18-22: Catechists and Religious Educators: "Come, Drink of the Holy Spirit"
July 25-27: Applied Biblical Studies: "Feasts of Israel, Feasts of the Church"
July 27-29: Defending the Faith: "The Truth Shall Set You Free"

In addition, there will be 17 youth conferences organized across North America. The theme — "All Access" — focuses on God's closeness to teens and calls them to let God into every aspect of their lives and transform them from within. Fr. Stan Fortuna, CFR; Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR; Mark Hart; and Melanie Welch are among the speakers.

Four of the youth conferences will be in Steubenville. Others will be in Massachusetts, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Minnesota, California, Colorado, Arizona, and, for the first time, in Nova Scotia, Canada.
