National Symposium: Religious Education, Secularisation and Australian Catholic Schools
27 July 2017 – 28 July 2017 | Professional Development and Short Courses
BBI is hosting 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.
