C.O.R.E. is a special leadership group for our youngest CYO members. Standing for Catholics Organizing and Representing Eighth-Graders, CORE is open to any 8th grader involved in the CYO. No elections or invitations needed -just a desire to be more involved. CORE meetings approximately once a month to learn leadership skills and then put those skills to work by planning an event for just the CYO 8th graders.
Kick-off Meeting will be Sunday, October 21, 2018, from 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM in Aquinas Hall.
