Archbishop Nelson Pérez celebrated Mass for 380 administrators and teachers of Archdiocesan parish and regional elementary schools in Delaware County on October 9. This Mass was celebrated as a part of a Professional Development day for Catholic educators in Delaware County.

Following Mass, Andrew McLaughlin, Ed.D., Secretary for Elementary Education for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, recognized teachers who have dedicated their lives to the mission of Catholic education for 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 years. The theme for the professional development program was “Cultivate a THRIVE versus SURVIVE Mentality.” (Photos: Sarah Webb)
