CLC Leadership and Contact Info

CLC would not be possible without our student, staff and Jesuit scholastic leaders! Each small group has a leader and CLC Council is made up of a team of students who oversee the entire CLC program. CLC leadership positions are open to all participants and the commitment, while hefty, is incredibly life-giving. All leaders are supported by the Faith Formation Campus Minister Allison Loecke.  See below for more specifics on CLC leadership

CLC Small Group Leaders (SGL) are responsible for leading/co-leading a small faith sharing group of 6-10 students throughout the academic year.
