Leaders Inspired to Evangelize (LITE)

LITE is a four-day, three-night conference/retreat focusing on evangelization and leadership development for Catholic youth entering grades 10-12.

Inspiring youth to evangelize is the heart of the LITE experience. Centered on the Eucharist, youth are called and empowered to be disciples of Christ and to share that call with their peers.

Based on relational/interactive youth ministry principles, LITE forms youth through peer-led interactive learning experiences, presentations, and small groups.

The location will be the Pope Francis Center in Landover Hills, MD.
