We expect that by the end of the Institute,
- will be able to discuss intelligently how the Catholic intellectual tradition can inform secular endeavors
- will have had personal encounters with people that model faithful excellence in society and that have assisted them in reflecting on their faith and the vocations.
- will be able to better narrate God’s action in their lives in the past and future, with awareness of the impediments to that action.
- will be trained to effectively lead high school students in articulating and experiencing how their faith permeates their own lives and their various life endeavors.
- will have been equipped with language to discuss with their children how their faith can transform even their not-explicitly-religious activities.
The Catholic University of America:
- will become a more mission-centered institution by expanding the reach of its resources to include high school students.
- will be shown as a premier national University and will hopefully be considered by the high school participants for undergraduate enrollment.
- will be blessed by young people more vivified in their faith and prepared for ministry in a variety of forms.
- will be enriched by what these young voices have to say about their experiences of growing in faith.
