Executive Director, Secretariat of Catholic Education at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
Mary Pat Donoghue has served the mission of Catholic education for nearly thirty years, as teacher, administrator, and consultant. In 2010, she spearheaded an effort to convert St. Jerome School in Hyattsville, Maryland from a failing school to a now-thriving institution by implementing a curriculum based on the Catholic liberal tradition, which has since been adopted by several Catholic schools across the country. Following her tenure at St. Jerome, Mary Pat served as the Director of School Services at the Institute for Catholic Liberal Education in Ventura, California. Currently, Mary Pat currently serves as the Executive Director of the Secretariat of Catholic Education at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).
