Christian Leadership Institute (CLI)
The Christian Leadership Institute, or CLI, is a six-day leadership training experience for high school age youth. CLI seeks to foster the leadership potential of our young Church by heightening each person’s gifts and talents for various ministerial roles and responsibilities in their parishes, schools, and greater communities. The CLI schedule includes opportunities for learning, prayer, affirmation and fun. Some sessions focus on the art of leadership; communication skills, leadership styles, group dynamics, and planning skills. Other sessions explore various aspects of Catholic Christian discipleship, and how that is embodied through prayer and liturgy, moral decision making, sacramental living and service. Despite this full schedule, there is still time for relaxation and recreation on the grounds of Cathedral Camp in East Freetown. CLI participants should possess maturity, openness, the ability to work with peers and adults, good communication skills and a sense of faith. Sponsored by the Fall River Diocese Office of Faith Formation.
