National Symposium: Religious Education, Secularisation and Australian Catholic Schools

BBI is delighted to host a national Symposium that explores the relationship between secularisation and religious education in Catholic schools.

Religious education is a critical aspect of Catholic identity and as such needs to be both attuned and responsive to our social context. Pope Francis has spoken about this time as a change of era. In light of this, the symposium is aimed at exploring the implication of changes in the wider culture for religious education in Australian Catholic schools.

Date: Thursday 27 to Friday 28 July, 2017
Time: 9.00am – 4.30pm
Venue: Waterview at Bicentennial Park
Address: Bicentennial Drive, Sydney Olympic Park (view map & directions)

Keynote speakers:

There will be a number of international and national high-profile speakers and experts in their field, who will be presenting over the two days. This information will be released shortly.
