  • General CALL Registration, opening Thursday, July 15th will grant the student access to 1 of the 3 options which can later be determined:
    • 1. IN PERSON seminars will be offered for all CALL years at the Diocesan Pastoral Center (DPC) on Saturdays from 10am-4pm: 1-29-22 (A & B) & 4-2-22 (C & D). In-person attendance for each CALL Year will be limited to a number, TBD, in order to cultivate a more intimate and involved formational experience.
      • For the first seminar of Year 2 (2A), a parent of the same sex should attend with their son or daughter.
      • Reservations for in-person attendance will be taken SEPARATELY for EACH SEMINAR DATE listed above, around a month leading up to the particular seminar.
      • Capacity for each seminar date will be finalized around 2 months before each seminar to account for the current societal circumstances and Diocesan policy. All current students and parents will receive email communications when the capacity is determined, along with information about the start date for RSVPs.
      • Once the capacity is reached, subsequent RSVPs will be placed on a waitlist.
    • 2. REMOTE attendance will be offered for those who prefer. Those who choose this option will be sent the official CALL seminar video recording links and seminar discussion/reflection questions (to be submitted for credit) on the in-person seminar dates posted above.
    • 3. OUTPOST seminars are a unique, flexible option that come with 1½ service hours per seminar for the student who organizes/hosts it (seminar A= 1½ hours, seminar B= 1½ hours, etc.). Those who choose this option will organize a group of 3 or more students to view the official seminar video and discuss the questions together (questions must also be answered individually in written form and submitted to CALL staff)
