As the school year draws near, teachers from 28 catholic schools meet at Resurrection Parish today in Evansville for a back to school gathering and mass.

The mass was preceded with a speech by author Gary McGuey, a motivational speaker who partners with Steven Covey and the 7 Habits for Highly Effective Pople.

The theme of this year's school year is "Family of Families."

"It's that family theme," said Superintendent Dr. Daryl Hagan. "That is why we do what we do. Our families are the primary educators of their children, but our school families are families as well. And so, to bring people together, that's what you would do in a family, and that's what we're doing here today."

Bishop Charles Thompson led this morning's mass.
