Dare to Be Different Video Winner
Earlier this year, the Diocese of London invited young people in grades 4 – 12 to help explore and communicate - through literature, film, or visual art - how we are called to move forward as Intentional Disciples. Pope Francis had identified ways young people - and in fact all Catholic Christians - are called to live in order to be credible reflections of Jesus’ love in the world. This way of living is described by Pope Francis as “Intentional Discipleship.” The winner was CCH student Jenna Goldsack.
