The Little Sisters of the Poor are hosting a public Catholic Vision for Leading Like Jesus Encounter at their St. Joseph’s Home in Palatine, IL, on Saturday, April 16, the day after the traditional deadline to pay federal income taxes.
No matter that the tax deadline has been extended this year – or whether you got a tax refund or had to pony up some cash to get right with the government. Whatever your circumstances, the Little Sisters are offering a super bargain registration fee – just $25.
That fee includes all materials, lunch and snack breaks.
“God bless the Little Sisters," says Owen Phelps, director of the Yeshua Institute and facilitator for the April 16 program. I don’t recall a lower rate for a public Encounter in the 10-plus years I’ve been doing them. Typically, prices range from $50 to $100, depending on the cost of the site,” he explained. “The Little Sisters really want to help their fellow Catholics learn how to be Jesus-like Leaders.”
The Leading Like Jesus program defines leadership as “anytime anyone tries to influence anyone else,” so everyone is a leader some of the time. The Catholic Vision for Leading Like Jesus goes beyond servant leadership to share Jesus’ own S3 approach – as servant, steward and shepherd.
“It’s intended to equip people to be effective leaders in their homes, workplaces, parishes and other communities of which they are a part,” says Dr. Phelps. The program has drawn praise from Catholics in six countries on three continents.
The Saturday, April 16 program runs from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Home, 80 W. Northwest Highway, Palatine, IL. However, all registrations are being handled online.
