Coming to the NCEA 2018 Convention & Expo in Cincinnati? Join us for the session: Teaching and Leading in Turbulent Times: How to Navigate Discussions about Racism, Politics and Current Events in Your Catholic School and Diocese:
Tuesday April 3, 2018
Junior Ballroom B
A panel of nationally recognized Catholic leaders, practitioners and theologians will discuss how to embrace and create constructive dialogue in regard to race relations, the bigotry of low expectations, secular politics and maintaining a moral compass that will guide and inspire the communities of faith that we are called to serve. The panel, led by the Most Reverend George W. Murray, Bishop of Youngstown, Ohio , will identify practical strategies for responding to major political, and global issues in a trustful way while clearly articulating the relationship between Catholic social teaching and the secular world. Participants will have a chance to interact with the panelists and to take away practical strategies for educating the minds and hearts of their students, faculty, parents and larger local community.
