Boston Advocates for Catholic Education (BACE)

Boston Advocates for Catholic Education 

Boston Advocates for Catholic Education (BACE) is a diverse group of educators, young professionals, and friends of Catholic schools who believe in the incredible gift of an education rooted in the Gospel and service to and with others. We strive to promote Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Boston; engage Boston's strong Catholic community; and assist Catholic schools through direct service, resources, and prayer.  BACE is a chapter of the University of Notre Dame's ACE Advocates for Catholic Schools.

There is no minimum requirement to be involved in BACE. We welcome everyone and will be excited to see you at any or many of our events!
