Grateful Advocates for Catholic Education

Publicly-funded Catholic education is a blessing. The mission of GrACE is to inspire, invigorate and embolden the spirit of Catholic education in order to unite, engage, educate and communicate with one voice on its behalf. 

All Catholic school districts, including STAR Catholic, have been asked to form a GrACE team. GrACE invites all those committed to Catholic education to be advocates and witnesses for our schools' success and their future.

Get Involved

Look for opportunities to join discussions with your local GrACE team, and help spread the good news of Catholic education in your homes, neighborhoods, schools, and parishes.

Join the conversation! Share good news stories using the hashtag #IBelieveInCatholicEd and follow GrACE on Facebook and Twitter.
