Happy Advent! Teachers on Retreat Embrace Community, Spirituality
One of the longest traditions in the Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) was convened for the nineteenth time on Nov. 30, 2012. Members of the two current cohorts in ACE Service through Teaching gathered over the weekend at a retreat center outside Austin, Texas, for the annual ACE Advent Retreat.
About 170 teachers serving in 26 dioceses marked the half-way point in the school year with a three-day experience of prayer, personal reflection, community-building, and fun. They entered the Advent season together as their Sunday liturgy began the new liturgical year and opened up a season of expectancy.
