The Catholic Academy for Life Leadership complements catechetical efforts in the Diocese by providing systematic formation, leadership, and service opportunities for teens in pro-life and chaste living topics such as Theology of the Body, Catholic teachings on human sexuality, and bioethics. C.A.L.L. supports parents in their aim to offer their teens a truthful and faithful Catholic Worldview with the hope of happy, healthy, and holy relationships and a vibrant faith throughout their college years.

In this modern age, teenagers are exposed to conflicting truths about love, sexuality, and their faith. The Catholic Academy for Life Leadership was developed to assist teens in living out the "call" by giving them tools to better defend their beliefs on topics surrounding love and life.

C.A.L.L. is a three year program that meets just four times a year in a seminar format that covers specific challenges that have arisen in this day and age. C.A.L.L.’s mission is to strengthen and solidify teen’s knowledge of topics such as, Theology of the Body, Catholic teachings on human sexuality, and bioethics. C.A.L.L. aids parents in helping their teens form an honest Catholic worldview.

Parents are encouraged to attend seminars along with their teens which allow them to discuss what they have learned and directly apply that to the family setting. The seminars are given by accomplished speakers who have a vast knowledge in a variety of fields ranging from philosophy to biology. C.A.L.L. promotes leadership in its teens that will foster a culture of life, love, and service. Certificates are provided and the leadership component is something all colleges want to see in their applicants!

The program costs only $75 per teen per year, with discounts for siblings and for those who attend their parish youth group. Scholarships are also available for those who qualify.

Please visit the C.A.L.L. website www.catholicacademyforlifeleadership to register your teen or just to see what great seminars and speakers we have lined up this year! This program will help teens stay on track during high school and young adult years. Your teens may even be awarded one of our new college scholarships! We hope you will widely promote this program.
