ACE Marathon raises over $10,000 for technology upgrades at Saint Matthias

On Saturday, March 12, mixed in with 23,000 runners were 50 teachers, supporters, and even a priest running in support of Saint Matthias!  The annual Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) marathon brings ACE teachers and supporters from across the country to one location to support an ACE school.  This year, thanks to the leadership of Elizabeth Surat and the ACE DC house, Saint Matthias received over $10,000 in support of technology upgrades.

The weekend’s festivities began with a prayer service at Saint Matthias
