Grace Period Anchor Point, Spiritual Resources from the Alliance for Catholic Education

As teachers and school leaders face these days of darkness, the Alliance for Catholic Education invites you to join us as we walk toward the light that our faith tells us lies ahead.

Each Monday, join us for Grace Period, a weekly series of audio reflections by Fr. Lou DelFra, CSC, designed to meet your busy schedule as teachers and educators and help you pause, listen for God’s voice in your life, and begin anew.

And each day, we invite you to pray Anchor Point, a daily prayer to proclaim God’s love to begin the day and proclaim God’s faithfulness as the day draws to a close.

We pray that each of you find grace in each day, and we thank you for all you do for Catholic schools.

When God and Grandma Have Other Plans

“We have superintendents, school counselors, teachers. We call education ‘The Family Business,’ and I fought being a part of it for years,” says Kristy Martinez, a graduate of the Mary Ann Remick Leadership Program’s 17th cohort.

Kristy resolved her family’s vocation would not be hers. She was going to be a lawyer.

But God and Grandma had other plans.
