By Staff     9/13/2018

Diocese of Orange presidents, principals, and teachers gathered at Santa Margarita Catholic High School for the diocese’s annual Educator’s Convocation on August 24.

As Superintendent Erin Barisano noted: “It was a day of faith, fellowship, and sharing as we looked to the future of Catholic schools in our diocese. We were blessed to have Dr. Leonard DeLorenzo as our keynote speaker who shared with us the importance of sharing stories of grace with our students, parents, and communities. Dr. DeLorenzo is a graduate of Mater Dei High School and is the director of Notre Dame Vision which is a program designed to help young adults find their true vocation. He offered a message of hope and inspired us to share our own faith stories as a way to build community at individual school sites and across the diocese.”
