The Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles are pleased to host this Youth Leadership Conference and other events as we continue our participation in Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s Year of Faith. The Year of Faith was announced by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI last year in his apostolic letter Porta Fidei. We pray this special year enkindles a fire of love in our hearts for our beautiful Catholic faith.


The Youth Leadership Conference is open to Juniors and Seniors in high school. During this conference, youth will learn valuable tools to become strong, Catholic leaders in their school, parish and local communities. The day includes keynote speaker, Chris Stefanick, well-known youth leader and international speaker (www.reallifecatholic.com), leadership workshops by Carmelite Sisters and others, praise and worship, Adoration and Holy Mass. Each participant will also receive a copy of YouCat, which is based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church and written for and by young people who want to know what they believe.


This event is $10.00 per person (for those who are able to pay) and there are five bus scholarships available for schools or parishes wishing to send large groups. Meals will be provided. Flyers and/or schedules listing all the details of this event will be posted on our website as this event draws nearer. Please register if you would like to attend, as we expect high numbers attending and to assist us with meal counts.
