The University of Notre Dame’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) will send forth 272 Catholic school teachers and leaders to nearly 200 Catholic schools across the country in the annual Missioning Mass, capping two months of professional formation and spiritual renewal. The ceremony, scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Friday (July 24) in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, will celebrate and bless the next steps on the educators’ journeys back to their respective schools and classrooms.

The Most Rev. Daniel R. Jenky, C.S.C., bishop of the Diocese of Peoria, will preside at the Mass as well as in missioning ceremonies at 8:30 p.m. Thursday (July 23) at the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes. He will join ACE’s co-founders, Rev. Timothy R. Scully, C.S.C. and Rev. Sean McGraw, C.S.C., in sending forth 187 participants in ACE Teaching Fellows, 57 participants in the Mary Ann Remick Leadership Program and 28 participants in the teacher licensure program for English as a New Language.
