Catholic Leadership Training

Catholic Leadership Training is available for individual parishes as well as parish clusters and entire deaneries. The Catholic Youth & Young Adult Ministry staff can design evening, day, or weekend programs that meet your group's specific needs. Popular topics include:

  • Retreat team training
  • Peer ministry training
  • Event planning
  • Liturgy planning
  • Small group facilitation

Catholic Leadership Institute (CLI) is a five-day experience of leadership skill training, servant leadership reflection, community-building, prayer, and good food designed to help both teenagers already in leadership positions and those with leadership possibilities develop their god-given potential. Skills taught include:

  • Team formation
  • Small group facilitation
  • Liturgy Planning
  • Communications skills
  • Peer witness
  • Conflict resolution

Yong people are both the present and future church, and as such, must be equipped to be leaders and not just followers. CLI is held each June at the Bishop Tracy Center in the Diocese of Baton Rouge.
