“She Is More Righteous Than I” - God’s Promise and the Women of Genesis: Dr. Mahri Leonard-Fleckman returns to the Catholic Biblical School this May to focus on Genesis and how God works specifically through the stories of Israel’s matriarchs (Sarah, Rebekah, Leah and Rachel, Tamar). We don't often focus on the relationship between God and the matriarchs; we're so used to talking about God's promise through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In reality, Genesis often shows God at work in the background through the women, sometimes even against the men!

  • Date and Time: Saturday, May 6, 2017, 9:30 a.m - noon (“Coffee and” at 9:00 a.m.)
  • Place: St. Thomas Seminary, Bloomfield

Enrollment Management/Marketing in Catholic Schools

Advertise with Stories

AP.jpgAccording to the GEM Marketing firm which works with OEEC, many companies are beginning to take more of a storytelling approach to advertising. They recommend this tactic since it can be “a more effective way to advertise your product” and can help set you apart from your competitors.

To put it in a nutshell, it is more beneficial to “advertise an experience
rather than the product’s features.”Read more...
