CSJ Leadership Conference
Wednesday, March 16 from 12:00 - 3:00 pm
This will be a three-hour virtual retreat with students from all four California CSJ high schools. The theme will be "What do Faith and Spirituality Look Like to YOU?" This year's conference focuses on Synod 2021-2023. The synod is a worldwide reflection that Pope Francis has invited all the People of God, especially women and young people, to participate in. Unlike ever before, in addition to consulting with bishops from dioceses around the globe, Pope Francis is asking all of us to reflect on our journey as Christians and provide feedback and reflections. We have a unique opportunity to share students' thoughts, reflections, and needs directly with the Pope through Synod 2021-2023 and want to make sure CSJ high school students' voices are heard! There are 10 spots available for this retreat, and all grade levels are invited to apply. Students will miss the end of G block and the entirety of F block. Apply for the CSJ Leadership Conference using this Google Form by Friday, March 4.
