The Holy Cross Office of Vocations will be joining FOCUS student leaders from across the nation January 20-23 for their 2012 leadership summit. Answering the Church’s call for a new evangelization, the Fellowship of Catholic University Students is a national outreach that meets college students where they are and invites them into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ and the Catholic faith. The theme of this year’s student leadership summit, Illuminate, is drawn from Matthew 5:14, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.”
Joining Fr. Jim Gallagher, C.S.C., the Director of the Office of Vocations, at the FOCUS Student Leadership Summit will be Mr. Chase Pepper, C.S.C. Chase, a temporarily professed seminarian who made his First Profession of Vows in Holy Cross back on July 30, 2010, was a FOCUS missionary for two years before joining Holy Cross and the Candidate Program at Moreau Seminary.
The Summit will feature teaching and training sessions on four primary topics: Prayer, Evangelization, Discipleship, and Lifelong Mission. Fr. Jim and Chase will be attending and representing Holy Cross to help the FOCUS student leaders discern and discover where God is calling them on lifelong mission, to be men and women with hope to bring.
