For the third year in a row, leaders from youth organizations throughout the Church gathered for prayer and ongoing formation in a two-day event called Cor Unum (meaning “one heart.”)  The gathering, held at the start of the Lenten season 2013 at the Carmel Retreat Center in Hoschton, Georgia, focuses on building communion and forming true apostles of the new Evangelization. 

Fr. Martin Connor LC gave the keynote address at the event, titled “Reclaiming the Fullness of Love,” based on the teachings of now Pope emeritus, Benedict XVI. 

“It’s important that we come together for ongoing formation in the faith to help and support each other to fulfill our specific missions within this New Evangelization,” said Fr. Martin. 

Leaders in attendance represented Catholic groups such as Life Teen, the Knights of Columbus, Christ in the City, the Theology of the Body Institute, Focus missionaries, and Regnum Christi. 

“It is difficult to imagine anything quite as fruitful for building unity across apostolates and movements in the Church in such a natural, beautiful way,” said Jimmy Mitchell, who attended the event.  Mitchell is the founder of a new record Company called Mysterium, based in Nashville, Tenn.

The next Cor Unum will take place on March 3-4, 2014 at the same location as the 2013 event.
