At Cana, Jesus is our role model and example. Jesus was a leader. He taught people about God and brought them closer to Him. Jesus’ example of leadership was that of a servant. He washed His disciples feet, took care to be gentle and said “I have set an example for you”. Our student leaders aim to further demonstrate this example of Servant Leadership with all they encounter at Cana and the wider community.
