The Portland ACE Advocates are dedicated to building a community of people dedicated to supporting Catholic education in the Portland area. We are part of a larger national movement uniting Catholic school supporters under a common mission: to foster greater commitment to, support of, and innovation for Catholic schools. We invite the participation of all who love Catholic schools, from teachers and administrators, to parents and alumni, lawyers and business professionals, the clergy and religious--creators of the American Catholic school system.

We lead events that include masses, dinners, happy hours, movie nights and are always looking for other event ideas. Please let us know if you have any ideas of other things we can do.
