YM Opp Young People

Christian Leadership Institute (CLI) is a week-long leadership camp that helps young Christian disciples build upon their individual gifts and develop new leadership skills to use in service to our parishes, schools, and the world. CLI is a fun, exciting week for high school teens who are entering at least 10th grade to prepare for a leadership role in their parish Youth Ministry or high school Campus Ministry by learning new skills, putting those skills into action, and exploring what it means to live in community. While CLI is not a retreat, it is grounded in our Catholic faith and includes experiences of prayer and liturgy.

CLI 2021 is scheduled for July 18 – 23, at Mater Dolorosa Retreat Center.

Registration materials will be available in Spring 2021. While the cost is not yet finalized, we anticipate that it will be around $320 per person (includes room and board as well as all materials for the week).
