OVERVIEW OF EVENT

  

Collegia Catholic Boston will host the first annual CONNECT – Boston gathering. This event offers opportunities for Catholic (and non-Catholic) college and university students in greater Boston to come together for an evening of networking, food, inspiration, and faith. Held at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and its neighboring high school, CONNECT – Boston is expected to draw up to 2,000 students. The event looks to connect students deeper to their faith, each other, campus ministries, service opportunities, and successful Catholic leaders in their career fields.

 

Keynote Speakers and Schedule

 

Confirmed keynote speakers include Cardinal Seán O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston, and Curtis Martin, Founder and CEO of the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS), one of the fastest-growing college outreach apostolates in the Catholic Church. Speakers with pending invitations include men and women Catholic executives in 7 areas of career interest. In addition to the keynotes, the evening will include dinner and an extended time of Eucharistic Adoration, Procession, and Confessions. Students will also be encouraged to connect with the representatives of local Catholic organizations whose missions serve populations with diverse needs.

 

Networking Breakout Groups/ Panel Discussions

 

For one hour of the evening, students will be invited to join one of seven interest/career groups: healthcare, technology, business/finance, law/public service, education, media/ arts, and a Catholic professional group for those still discerning a career or vocational path. Each of these sessions will feature prominent local Catholic leaders in their field and will offer opportunities for connecting with other students and the leaders themselves. The purpose of each session is to inspire and educate students on various professional paths, and how a life of Faith can be lived in each.
