2017 Catholic Education Summit - Reflection by Stephanie Klein

Stephanie Klein joined us at the 2017 Catholic Education Summit at the University of Dayton on June 22, 2017.

Thank you for continuing to resonate with the inspiration of the day and for embracing your purpose and to follow Christ. Blessings for the summer and the new school year! ~Susan Ferguson
