Greetings from Brookline, Massachusetts! As the
teens in our communities approach the beginning of young adult life, they are
developing questions about themselves, the world around them, and their future
occupations. The CrossRoad Summer Institute, now in its sixteenth year and
offering three sessions, welcomes ninety-six high school juniors and seniors to
participate in a ten-day faith-based vocation exploration program developed to
help them wrestle with these big questions. The curriculum approaches these
questions from an Orthodox Christian perspective, and offers the space and
resources for students to discover their natural gifts and talents in order to
use them in service to their church and to society.
The dates for the 2019 CrossRoad Summer Institute
are June 15-25 (Session 1), July 2-12 (Session 2), and July 23-August 2 (Session 3).
Sessions 1 and 2 will be held on the campus of Hellenic College Holy Cross
School of Theology in Brookline, MA, and Session 3 will be held at North Park
University in Chicago, IL.
For ten days participants will:
• Grow in their faith
• Explore their strengths
• Engage in serving others
• Discover how their gifts and talents can serve
the needs of the Church and society
In selecting CrossRoad participants, our committee
depends on recommendations of the applicants supplied by persons who know them
well. We are eager to select those individuals whose interests indicate that
they have the greatest potential to benefit from this program. Please provide a
frank and thoughtful appraisal of the applicant. We greatly appreciate the time
you devote to this evaluation.
