The Catholic Education Convention 2018 is over and it has been a resounding success.
Thank you to all of you that attended. Thank you to the many people who contributed to its success – our presenters, our conference team, our venue staff, those in the Catholic community who gave their time and creativity to ensure that we had the best possible liturgies, and the best possible presenters. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Photos and recordings of keynote presentations will be added to this page as they come available. Let us know if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
