One Summer …
3 Great Opportunities
Prayer and Action: Osage City
July 9–14, 2017
Prayer & Action sessions last five days, with students arriving on Sunday evening and staying until Friday morning. Throughout the week the students will paint, clean, do yard work, and perform other meaningful tasks for the poor, disabled, and elderly.
The students will spend the week in an atmosphere that is free of distractions which will foster their faith, inspire charity, and lead them closer to Christ. The experience will also allow them to get to know other high school students from other parts of the Archdiocese who share their Catholic faith.

Cost: $250 (covers registration and transportation)
Franciscan Lead: Lousiana
June 19–23, 2017
Franciscan LEAD is a five-day, Christ-centered, sacrament-soaked, prayer fueled immersion in Catholic teachings on leadership, evangelization, and discipleship inspired by the life and witness of St. Francis of Assisi.
Our leadership philosophy is based on the foundation that youth leadership flows from a personal relationship with Christ. Therefore, we first give teens the tools to grow closer in their relationship with Jesus and then give them the essentials for servant leadership and evangelization.
St. John likes to send 2–4 youth to LEAD each year, if possible. These students will be expected to take a leadership role in the youth group, using the tools they learn during this week. Students will then meet the rest of the group for the Steubenville South conference on Friday.
Cost: TBD (covers registration, food, lodging and transportation)
STUDENTS, talk to your small group leader by Sunday, February 26, if you are interested in LEAD. The application process begins soon!
