North Side Kairos 20 – Be A Leader!

Join the Team
Be a Kairos Leader for Others

The North Side Kairos has been a collaborative effort by Chicago parishes for nearly 20 years. The retreat brings together Kairos leaders from different high school programs around Chicago to provide a coed Kairos retreat for juniors and seniors in high school who attend public schools.

If you’ve been invited to this webpage, it is because you have something to offer. You can provide a huge service to others, while also deepening your own experience of the Kairos retreat.

We are looking for leaders who are willing to meet once a month from now until the North Side Kairos 20 retreat on August 9 thru 12, 2019.  You’ll be challenged and strengthened by working with our dedicated team of adult mentors who will guide you through leading the retreat for others.

What you’ll get out of serving as a leader

1) Exposure to how Kairos is done at other schools/parishes.

2) Leadership development

3) Spiritual growth and deeper connection with God

4) Satisfaction of making Kairos happen for others who would not otherwise have the chance.
