July 26, 2017 – Excerpted From Put Out Into The Deep, Bishop DiMarzio’s column in The Tablet:
My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord,
Last weekend, the Diocese of Brooklyn, through St. John’s University, hosted the annual Steubenville New York Conference. For several years now, the Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio has sponsored a youth conference that is attended by over 2,000 young people from all over the East Coast.
This year, there were well over 60 priests in attendance as well as numerous youth ministers working with these young people. I, myself, celebrated the Closing Mass on Sunday and it was an enthusiastic celebration. The music was provided by the National Life Teen Ministry which provides contemporary music for youth events around the country.
