Conference Agenda


Keepers of the Flame "DropBox"
Please contact smoore@sofie.org for login information and DropBox directions.

Conference Goals:
To allow participants the opportunity to collaborate on their plans, to look at what other schools have accomplished, to share experiences within various topics of formation

To provide an exercise in taking new skills, applying excellent content and taking a product home to use in forming communities in Sacred Heart heritage and mission. Participants will leave knowing and feeling good about what is accomplished in so little time and what there is yet to accomplish upon returning home with more resources (time, human and physical)
