Catholic school teachers and administrators from across Alexandria gathered at Menard Central High School today for the 'Vocation of Catholic Education' conference.

It also gives the teachers a refresher course on the mission of Catholic school education.
"The teachers have been very excited about it. It's a refreshing thing. It's more professional development. It just kind of redirects you and shows you what our mission is, what it is we want to accomplish as Catholic educators," says Joel Desselle, principal at Menard.
