“It was a weekend I won’t forget. The Adoration and Mass made me closer to God.” -- Samantha, 16


“I did things I never would have done on my own. My faith became my own.” -- Thomas, 16





Just as many disciplines came together to build a cathedral, Benedictine College’s CATHolic EDucation RALly (Cathedral) program asks “What does it mean to build a Catholic culture?” Choose a track suited to your interests as you explore the Catholic intellectual tradition, building Cathedrals for Christ.


Available Cathedral tracks include: Voice, Leadership, Great Books, or Sciences (Engineering, Chemistry or Biology).


  • Cathedral Voice, Leadership and Great Books are one-week programs scheduled for June 14-19, 2015.





“I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.” -- St. Paul


Do you want to become a better musician? Use your gifts to give back to the Lord? Meet other talented singers? Come to this conference to have an awesome week growing musically and spiritually as you explore traditions in Catholic praise.   


Benedictine College Cathedral Voice is a weeklong vocal conference, providing an opportunity for students to grow in fellowship and technical skill while combining musical talent with love for the Lord. This camp concludes with a public concert to showcase the talent of this group and their hard work during the week.




“The only palliative is to keep the clean sea breeze of the centuries blowing through our minds, and this can be done only by reading old books.” -- C.S. Lewis


“Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of the truth.” -- St. John Paul II


Benedictine College Cathedral’s Great Books program gives students the opportunity to start to enter the great conversation about the fundamental truths of human existence that thinkers have been engaged in for centuries. Professors lead students through some of the most engaging and ennobling texts in history — from the ancient world to the 20th century.





"Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood." -- Acts 20:28


Are you interested in learning more about who you are and what you have to offer as a leader? Are you interested in how to effectively lead your peers without compromising your integrity? Do you want to know how to motivate a team or deal constructively with conflict? Do you want to learn how to formulate a vision and design an action plan? If you are interested in developing these and other skills as a leader then Benedictine College's Cathedral Leadership program is for you.
