The Twin Cities LEI will feature presentations and lectures by national Catholic school leaders with demonstrated success in implementing innovative Latino outreach strategies. The presenters have years of experience serving culturally and linguistically diverse student populations, and provide authentic witness to the notion that a Catholic school’s success is not dependent on the abundance of resources that it brings to bear, but rather on the authenticity and vigor with which it develops fresh and imaginative ways to carry out its mission.


CCF is inviting Catholic schools and supporters of Catholic education from the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. Each school is encouraged to bring a team of three representatives, comprised of:

  1. school principal (required)
  2. enrollment or marketing manager (or any individual key to engaging and serving Latino families)
  3. school pastor
