Catholic leaders to explore challenges, direction of Catholic education in America

.- On Wednesday, Catholic school leaders and educators from around the nation will descend on Washington DC for a conference exploring the challenges and hopes for Catholic education--specifically in primary and high school years--in the face of a changing world. Catholic University of America is sponsoring the event in conjunction with the Atlanta-based Solidarity Association founded by Catholic Philanthropist Frank Hanna.

Special guests and presenters for the conference will include Catholic University’s president, Very Reverend David M. O’Connell, CM, who will give a welcoming address along with Frank Hanna; and Archbishop J. Michael Miller, Secretary of the Vatican’s Congregation for Catholic Education, who will speak on the Holy See’s Teachings on Catholic Education.

Likewise, a panel discussion featuring Attorney David Brennan of Akron-based White Hat Management, who helped successfully pass Ohio’s School Voucher law and push it to the Supreme Court; Dr. John Convey, Provost of Catholic University and a prominent Catholic education consultant; and Mr. Francis X. Meier, Chancellor of the Archdiocese of Denver, will be held on Wednesday afternoon.

Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, Archbishop of Washington DC, will also be on hand to celebrate a closing Mass with participants in the nearby Crypt of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception.

Organizers say that the conference will bring together Catholic education leaders from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and members of the National Catholic Educational Association, as well as superintendents and heads of Catholic schools from around the DC-Baltimore area.

Likewise, numerous representatives from independent Catholic schools and the home-schooling arena will also be present.
