This week when many Catholic schools will be off for Easter/spring break, Sarah Jenkins will be sitting shoulder to shoulder with some of the biggest names in Catholic education.
Jenkins, a senior at Duchesne High School in St. Charles, was tapped to speak at a panel discussion at the National Catholic Educational Association Convention and Expo, taking place in St. Louis April 18-20. More than 8,000 attendees from across the United States and Canada are expected at the America's Center Downtown this week for an exchange of ideas and professional development opportunities.
PITTSBURGH -- The new evangelization is not a new Gospel, but refocuses the faithful on the good news of Jesus and involves the renewal of faith and the willingness to share it, Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl of Washington told the National Catholic Education Association.
"We bring a fuller vision," Cardinal Wuerl said of the Catholic faith during his keynote address at NCEA's annual convention. "We need to admit that and be proud of it."
