July 28, 2016 (Louisville, KY) – Approximately 750 teachers from 40 Catholic elementary schools will gather on Friday, August 5 to celebrate the beginning of the 2016-2017 school year and share their collective ministry in Catholic school education. This event will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at St. Lawrence Parish, 1925 Lewiston Drive.
Teachers will gather to celebrate Mass with Archbishop Joseph Kurtz and hear a keynote from Brother David Migliorino entitled, “Jesus CEO.” Here is Br. David’s description of the topic of his address: “When we place Jesus as our Chief Executive Officer in our schools, we become better administrators and teachers. Jesus must be the welcomed and hidden guest in our classrooms, offices, cafeterias, courts and playgrounds. In this way, we are never alone. His Gospel is the greatest textbook and manual of all times. Armed with the Gospel, we can do great things for this most precious and greatest Church ministry of Catholic education.”
The Archdiocese of Louisville has 49 Catholic elementary and secondary schools serving seven counties of Central Kentucky.
