Introduction

New Orleans Archbishop Gregory Aymond has designated 2021 as the Year of the Eucharist in the Archdiocese.  The theme for this year's Institute draws its inspiration from that as well as from the recognition of the hardships that bodies have faced due to COVID-19 and the separation that it's caused from loved ones and even from worship.

Yet, there's another body, the Eucharistic Body of Christ. While proper understanding of the Eucharist is important, it is also meant to be experienced. As Eucharistic bread and wine, it nourishes us physically and spiritually and so affirms the goodness of our bodies.

Join us June 7-8 for the 14th Annual Summer Institute for Catholic Educational Leadership when Dr. Kathleen Bellow of Xavier University of Louisiana will address the topic of the Eucharist for all leaders and aspiring leaders in Catholic education and faith formation. From 9AM-Noon Central Time on Monday June 7, she will lead a morning of reflection that involves presentations, small-group and large-group interaction, and times for silent reflection. Monday will be experiential and nourish us as educational leaders in mind, body, and spirit. From 9AM-Noon on Tuesday June 8, she will lead participants in an interactive reflection on the implications of the Eucharist for educational leaders in schools and parishes.

Register early; space is limited!
