Breakout Session Speaker


Mary Pat Donoghue currently serves as the executive director of the Secretariat of Catholic Education at the USCCB. Mary Pat has served the mission of Catholic education for more than thirty years as teacher, school administrator, and national consultant. In 2010, she spearheaded an effort to convert St. Jerome School in Hyattsville, Maryland, from a school on the verge of closure to a now-thriving institution by implementing a curriculum based on the Catholic liberal tradition. The unique Educational Plan of St. Jerome Academy has since been adopted by multiple Catholic schools and dioceses across the country.
