.- Father Joseph Fessio, SJ, is slated to speak at the third annual North Georgia Catholic Homeschooling Conference next month.  The conference will include daily Mass, speakers, Catholic university representatives and an extensive used book and curriculum sale.

The conference, which will take place on April 17-18 at North Metro Tech in Acworth, Ga., will follow the theme, “A Journey with St. Paul.”

Co-organizer, Annette Hew told CNA that the conference will provide an occasion for “Catholic Homeschoolers to be inspired to continue homeschooling or to begin homeschooling.”  Furthermore, she continued, parents will be able to actually see “good Catholic curriculum,” and have the opportunity to meet other homeschooling families.

Fr. Fessio will give two talks to the conference participants, the first is titled, “Walking in the Footsteps of St. Paul,” and the second is “Homeschooling and the Mass.”  Other speakers will discuss the Catholic homeschooling journey – from getting started to preparing for college.

The conference will also offer daily Mass, Catholic vendors and an extensive used book and curriculum sale.  Hew noted the importance of the book sale in light of uncertain economic times.  “The used book sale we are sponsoring is a wonderful place to acquire good Catholic materials at a discounted price, which is so important today in our difficult economy.”

On Saturday, the second day of the conference, a college fair featuring Catholic colleges and local institutions will be offered.  Each school will offer a 10-15 minute presentation on its mission; admissions process; and other topics, such as transcript and portfolio preparation, testing, and financial aid.  Parents and prospective students will also have the opportunity to speak one-on-one with college representatives.

Colleges participating include: Belmont Abbey College, Southern Catholic College, John Paul the Great Catholic University and North Metro Tech.
