Light of the Faith: Catholic Formation for Classical Educators

In the fall of 2020, Mother of Divine Grace School kicked off a new webinar formation series: "Light of the Faith: Catholic Formation for Classical Educators". Mother of Divine Grace School has always been committed to the Catholic and classical formation not only of children, but also of families. We want to support you in your mission to raise your children in a living Catholic culture.

We hope that this "Light of the Faith" webinar series will revitalize you in your mission to lead yourselves and your families ever closer to God. See below for recordings of past webinars and for the schedule of upcoming webinars.
