Three Church School Conferences, one in each Deanery (New Jersey, New York City, New York State), were conducted during the month of August. A “first” for our diocese, this targeted focus on parish religious education is inspired by Bishop Michael’s dedication to nurturing the spiritual growth and development of children ~ of all ages ~ by providing training and resources to program directors and teachers. Looking ahead, Church School Conferences will be an annual diocesan event ... thanks to the financial support of the Distinguished Diocesan Benefactors program!
