Teens invited to put faith into action at C2SI

Published: May 17, 2024

The Catholic Charities Summer Institute (C²SI) will be held July 8-12 at St. John Catholic Center in Little Rock. This event is open to rising high school freshmen through recent high school graduates who seek to not only learn about the Church's social teachings but to put them into action.

During the five-day summer program youth will "Investigate God’s Word in Life" as they learn about poverty, homelessness, the elderly, refugees, human trafficking, immigration issues, the protection of the unborn and care for God’s creation through classroom work and hands-on community service.

The cost is $250 per person. Scholarships are available upon request. For a complete schedule, or to register, download the registration form and return it to the address provided with fee by June 14. Space is limited. This event is available on a first-come basis.

For more information, email Liz Tingquist or call her at (501) 664-0340, ext. 333. The summer institute is co-sponsored by the Catholic Youth Ministry Office and Catholic Charities of Arkansas.
