What will we do there? Students will participate in the general Sobor meetings as a context for understanding what the Church does and how they contribute to the workings of the Church.
As a group they will discuss what they have recognized and hear from guest speakers relating their experiences. The students will then work in small groups to prepare programming guidelines for a new or current national program of their choice. They will produce a plan that will become the basis for implementing new programming and improving national youth programming.
