For students entering grade 10 through first year of college
POWER Summit 2012 was an impactful experience for students, Sisters of St. Joseph (CSJ), St. Joseph Workers (SJW), and others.
“The greatest challenge of the day is how to bring about a revolution of heart, a revolution which has to start with each one of us.” Dorothy Day, co-founder of the Catholic Worker movementPOWER Summit 2012 - "Revolution of the Heart"
was an impacting two-day experience. The intergenerational learning group consisted of students from Benilde-St. Margaret and Cretin-Derham Hall, St. Joseph Worker volunteers, Sisters of St. Joseph from St. Paul and from the Congregational Leadership Team, Celeste's Dream staff, members of two local Catholic Worker Communities, a St. Catherine University professor, a POWER Summit alumna, and the director of a local nonprofit Appetite for Change.
We explored a range of issues from personal gifts and strengths and power to global economics and the current state of revolution in our world. We considered how each of us has a role to play in bringing about what Dorothy Day called a "revolution of heart" for the betterment and healing of the world.
