    In years past, Sacred Heart devotion was integral to the spiritual lives of individuals and communities. Today, that devotion is often viewed as sentimental and old-fashioned. In this webinar, Fr. James Kubicki, S.J., national director of the Apostleship of Prayer, will explain how devotion to the Heart of Christ is not individualistic or superficial, but actually an important part of a healthy spirituality--because it is Eucharistic and ultimately a response to God's devotion to us.

        John Quincy Adams defined leadership this way: "If your actions inspire others to dream more, to learn more, to do more and to be more than they are, then you are a leader." Leadership is an extremely complex issue. It is multidimensional - an amalgam of many different components. Effective Christian leadership requires a balanced mixture of spirituality, skill, positive relationship, unique qualities, sound theory, principles, and, perhaps, even a dash of charisma. Join bestselling authors, Br. Loughlan Sofield, S.T., and Sr. Carroll Juliano, S.H.C.J. as they explore the elements of effective Pastoral Leadership in the Christian Community.
