Student Programs

Dialogue Training

We invite high-school student leaders and faculty/staff mentors to join us at Woodlands Academy for a two-day dialogue training. This training will equip students with the skills to navigate differences in ways that lead to greater understanding rather than conflict and division. Students will learn new tools to expand their capacity to deeply and actively listen, grow in self-knowledge and self-confidence in the face of difference, and become effective, responsible global citizens who live with critical consciousness, respect, compassion, reciprocity, authenticity, and hope.  Along with being trained in these essential skills of civil discourse and dialogue, students will also learn how to facilitate and mediate difficult conversations in their school communities with confidence, courage and grace. The training will conclude with students brainstorming ways they can bring their new skills and tools to their communities along with across the Network.

More information and a detailed schedule to come soon.

Dates: April 8-10, 2019.  Arrive by 5:00 p.m. on April 8th. Program will conclude by 3:00 p.m. on April 10th.

    Our celebration of Philippine comes to a close this Sunday at the Celebration of the Feast of Saint Rose Philippine Duchesne and the Bicentennial Closing Mass in St. Louis will take place on Sunday, November 18 at 2:30 p.m. (CST). We are sharing this liturgy via live stream so our Sacred Heart family around the world may join in the celebration! A recording also will be available for 24 hours after the completion of the liturgy, on the same webpage.

    We thank all who have made the Bicentennial year so rich with prayer and learning, with exploration and truth-telling, with new understanding and new relationships, with publications and holy cards, with sculpture and Flat Philippines. Special Thanks to Kathleen Hughes, RSCJ and Bicentennial Committee for their creative energetic leadership of our celebration. The International Service Day, the class plans and the many activities across the Network proved to be an ideal way to make Philippine and the mission of the Society better known throughout the world! Thank you.
