“All of the learning outcomes in the Program of Studies contain a religious dimension. It is the right, responsibility and privilege of educators in Catholic schools to bring to consciousness the divine presence that resides in what is learned.”
Permeation: Living Eucharist in the Learning Community, 2002
In every school in our District there is, in the main entrance, a plaque proclaiming:
“Be it known to all who enter here that Christ is the reason for this school.
He is the unseen but ever present teacher in its classes.
He is the model of its staff and the inspiration of its students.”
We are gifted with an amazing opportunity to work in a faith-infused environment where Christ is ever-present and Catholic educators are vessels of His message. How lucky we are to be able to live “integrated lives” where our faith and our work are intertwined.
