What Past Participants Say

"I found that the talks inspired me to re-assess what I teach and how; I had innumerable good conversations with coworkers and fellow conference members; I met teachers of all different subjects, as well as school leaders, experienced and brand-new, and got to hear their thoughts and perspectives; I appreciated being part of a challenging and superbly led seminar conversation; and enjoyed worshipping together with all these educators in a beautiful, reverent and vibrant daily liturgy. I came away feeling rejuvenated, excited, and full of new ideas!"

"I was able to ground myself more deeply in a Christian anthropology that influences my teaching and living. I was reminded of the centrality of Christ and the Sacraments in this renewal, and I was able to experience a broad 'faculty of friends' across the country who are on mission together."

"I loved that the conference ended on the feast of Sts. Martha and Mary. After months of serving my school, I had a chance to sit at the feet of Our Lord and be encouraged and to listen to His voice through the content of the speakers and daily Mass. I left with a new sense of vocation and ideas that will build up the culture of our school."
