The noon to 1:30 p.m. event May 23 for parish ministers and youth directors will encourage them to carry the torch of character development, spiritual formation and values-based leadership development forward to the next generation of parish leaders. It takes place in the Christ Cathedral Pastoral Center at 1320 Chapman Ave., Garden Grove 92840.
