Students, leader attend conference

PERU — Four youth and their adult leader, Fr. Ronald Margherio, O.S.B., from St. Bede Academy in Peru attended the One Bread, One Cup Summer Liturgical Leadership Conference for high school youth and campus ministers on the campus of St. Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology in St. Meinrad, Ind.

During the five-day conference, the youth learn about their Catholic faith through sessions of catechesis, liturgical and spiritual formation, and participation in liturgies. They also are trained in liturgical ministries, such as lector, Eucharistic minister, and cantor, learning skills they can use in their high school.

Students attending the conference were Sophie Flodstrom, Victor Hernandez, Andrew Lopez and Rhiannon Seibert.

The conference is held three times each summer as a program of St. Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology operated by the Benedictine monks of St. Meinrad Archabbey. For more information, visit oboc.saintmeinrad.edu.
