Each summer, Saint Meinrad hosts several “One Bread, One Cup” gatherings.

One Bread, One Cup” is a five-day liturgical leadership conference focusing on the Word, Sacrament and Mission of the Roman Catholic Church for high school youth groups and their campus and youth ministers. Conferences focus on community building, leadership development, catechesis, liturgical and spiritual formation, and theological reflection and participants will enjoy opportunities for fellowship and fun through team building, outdoor recreation, a variety show and a dance. High school youth participants must have completed 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade.

Participants come to appreciate the Benedictine balance of prayer, work and recreation. During our conferences, attendees learn to use their God-given talents in liturgical ministry during formation sessions, then take those skills back to their parishes.
