Christian Leadership Institute

The Christian Leadership Institute returned to the Mount Saint Joseph Conference and Retreat Center the week of June 24-29. This is the 24th year for the program of the Diocese of Owensboro, which seeks to build Christian leadership skills in high school students.

There were 15 teenagers from across the diocese working on communication skills, seeking consensus, forms of prayer and developing their own liturgy and programs, said Melinda Prunty, an Ursuline Associate and director of youth ministry for the Diocese of Owensboro. At the end of the week, the students come up with a project to complete when they return home.
