2022 Campus Ministry Leaders Conference

Friday, February 4, 2022 and Saturday, February 5, 2022
Dancing with the Elephants in the Church and Higher Education:  Naming, Understanding, and Inviting Dialogue with Complexities in Catholic Campus Ministry

Join Campus Ministers from Catholic colleges and universities for an open and authentic dialogue on the current issues facing our church and Catholic higher education today.  Our students are longing to belong and connect post-pandemic, and we will draw from the wisdom in the room to tackle today's most pressing issues and provide practical tools for how to minister to today's young adults.  With skilled facilitators, themed-round table discussions, and powerful prayer, we are ready to be called back together to learn from each other.

Co-sponsored with CCMA
