About Topic

Topic “Embracing Grace,” is based on Ann’s Keynote address to 2019 NCEA General Session:

Embracing Grace in the 21st Century Church

These are challenging times to be in the field of Catholic education. Yet, we are surprised day after day and year after year by small “graces” that sustain us in this ministry – keeping us hopeful and learning in the midst of the craziness. Come and remember why you do what you do, as you consider also who you are becoming.
