The purpose of this initiative is to enable campus ministries in your diocese to develop student leaders who will expand Catholic programs without increasing staff or budgets.
Catholic Extension has partnered with the USCCB Office for Education to host Campus Ministry Leadership Institute (CMLI) regionally in mission dioceses. The agreement covers approximately 80 percent of the total cost of this institute, including the cost for students to travel to this event.
CMLI is an annual, four-day training that gathers teams of talented college students and campus ministers. These teams receive hands-on training to plan and execute new programs at their campuses that align with one of the six core aspects of campus ministry, as defined in the bishops' pastoral letter, Empowered in the Spirit.
Participant teams also will commit to implementing a specific project at their campus. These projects are student-driven initiatives, such as an on-campus evangelization campaign, a weekly Bible study class, retreats for men and women, or a new social outreach undertaking.
Through this agreement, CMLI will rotate to different regions for three consecutive years to maximize attendance for mission dioceses and minimize travel costs. In the summer of 2012, CMLI was held in the Diocese of Jefferson City, Missouri, and will be offered in Mobile, Alabama, in 2013 and in San Antonio, Texas, in 2014.
Duration: 4 days
Value to Participating Diocese: $6,000 (per campus)
Dates for the 2013 CMLI
Session 1: June 4-9, University of San Diego - San Diego, California
Session 2: June 25-30, Spring Hill College - Mobile, Alabama
