As Catholic Leadership Institute celebrates 30 years of igniting our parishes, emboldening our clergy, and forging the future, we invite you to join us in making 30 visits to our Lord in Adoration over the next year to give thanks for the many blessings He has bestowed upon this ministry and to pray fervently for the Church and Her leaders.

† For an unquenchable thirst for us to discover the fullness of the faith as given by Christ

† For an outpouring of our humble, authentic witness to the lifechanging power of God in our lives
