The Catholic Education Foundation
invites bishops, priests and seminarians to participate in an intensive and comprehensive two-day seminar:

The Role of the Priest in Today’s Catholic School

For whom? Clergy who are pastors, parochial vicars, or those directly involved in the elementary or secondary school apostolate (or who wish to be)

When? From 4:00 p.m., August 18 to 4:00 p.m., August 19, 2015 (with accommodations available a day earlier or later)

Where? Immaculate Conception Seminary, Huntington, New York (on Long Island, a short ride from LaGuardia or JFK Airports)

How much? $325 per person (all-inclusive)

The Catholic Education Foundation (CEF), convinced by history and the present reality, believes that the viability of our Catholic schools is largely dependent on the support and involvement of our priests. Our seminar will include workshops dealing with the following topics:

  • Conciliar and Papal Teaching on Catholic Education
  • The History of Catholic Education in the United States
  • The Priest’s Presence in the School Community (Students, Faculty, Administration, Parents)
  • The Priest as the Public Relations Man of the School
  • Financial Concerns
  • Models of Governance and Best Practices
CEF board member, Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston comments:
“This is a most needed initiative, and I hope you obtain a healthy response from the dioceses.”
