August 4, 2016

Jocelyn Sideco offered the keynote at a new week-long high school theology institute at Canisius College, one of 82 Lilly Endowment grantees awarded $583,000 to create opportunities for high schoolers to engage in their faith and to grow in their understanding of theology and explore Christian leadership and service.   The Endowment has been making grants to support private colleges and universities as they strive to cultivate faith and vocation programs for undergraduates, since 1999.
