We are excited to announce that this summer the CYO/Youth & Young Adult Ministry Office will again offer the Catholic Leadership Institute, an opportunity for high school aged young people to learn and experience the Church's message about servant leadership and to gain concrete, practical skills to take back to their parishes and high schools.
CLI (Catholic Leadership Institute) offers an opportunity to train the students you identify as having leadership potential. They do not necessarily have to already be the prominent leaders in your school or parish. If you see the potential for leadership, CLI will give them the skills to grow into leadership positions. It is our hope that CLI can be a resource to you in growing new leadership for your ministries.
CLI will be held this year on June 6-10, 2022, at the University of Holy Cross. Participants will be expected to arrive by 9:00 AM on June 6 and remain until 4:00 PM on June 10. The cost for the week is $375 which includes lodging, all meals, and institute supplies.
Registration involves the young person sending a deposit of $100, as well as the registration & liability/medical release forms, no later than Monday, March 7, 2022. Balance payments of $275 will be due by Monday, April 25, 2022.
Students involved in campus ministry clubs and teams, retreat teams, student council, CLC's, CYO, Life Teen, parish youth groups, etc. can all benefit from this opportunity. We hope that you might consider CLI as an opportunity for quality ministry leadership training, especially in that it will present skills in the context of our Catholic faith, emphasize the concept of servant leadership, and encourage them to utilize these skills for the growth of your parish or school community.
