All high school students from rising freshman to graduating seniors are invited to take part in opportunities to make friends, have fun, and grow closer to Christ this summer at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kan.
Students can choose from a weekend-long youth conference or one of three week-long “Cathedral” (CATHolic EDucation RALly) programs, including Great Books, Youth for Life, and Voice. The College reports:
Benedictine College’s CATHolic EDucation RALly examines the question “What does it mean to build a Catholic culture?” Choose a track suited to your interests as you explore the Catholic intellectual tradition, building Cathedrals for Christ…
[Voice program:] Join other high school students who have a desire to use their musical talents to serve the church. Explore traditions in praise throughout Catholic history as you perfect your skills and grow in leadership through small group ensembles, creating music that will inspire Catholic evangelization.
Youth for Life Summer Program will train and send out future leaders of the Pro-Life movement inspired to lead a cultural transformation. John Paul II said, "The first and fundamental step towards this cultural transformation consists in forming consciences with regard to the incomparable and inviolable worth of every human life." Evangelium Vitae 96. classes will be taught by Benedictine College professors, Pro-Life activists, and legal professionals who are passionate about sharing their specialized knowledge to build Culture of Life.
The Youth for Life program was announced shortly after the College returned from sending eight buses and leading the March for Life in Washington, D.C., as was reported.
