High School Arrupe Leaders Summit

While Sharon and I spent the weekend at Sea Ranch, Jack was in Los Gatos. He was one of three freshman and three sophomores at Jesuit High School chosen to attend the Arrupe Leaders Summit.

The ISN Arrupe Leaders Summit invites emerging student leaders and faculty/parish chaperones from Jesuit high schools and parishes nationwide to deepen their understanding of “a faith that does justice,” share ideas and resources for social justice programming, and become empowered to effect positive social change in their local and global communities.

Throughout the three-day program, students explore The Student Leadership Challenge: Five Practices for Exemplary Leaders through the lens of Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J.’s life. Arrupe, a former Superior General of the Society of Jesus, is known for his strong leadership of the Jesuits during a tumultuous period in global history and a time of great transition for the Catholic Church and the Jesuits.
