The Ministry Leadership Program is part of the Generative Spirit Initiative, which cultivates connection between Catholic Sisters and lay partners, particularly young adults, to respond to the evolving needs of the world through ministries that nurture presence, accompaniment, trust, dignity, and justice.

With the support of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, Generative Spirit will inspire the next generation of lay leaders who follow the model of Catholic sisters in service and ministry.

The Ministry Leadership Program serves emerging leaders (ages 22-35) at mission-driven schools, colleges, and non-profit organizations that have a commitment to improving the lives of individuals who are marginalized and/or living in poverty. Together, sisters and young adults will participate in monthly workshops that focus on leadership, spirituality, and learning through intergenerational relationships with Catholic sisters, with the hope of developing the next generation of lay leaders in ministry.
