Religious Education in RC Post Primary School:

Post-Primary Adviser – Reflection on the role for today:
Frank

“At the heart of our faith is the invitation to respond to the call of God. In particular, as Diocesan Advisers involved in catechesis, our challenge is to enable teachers and their pupils to hear that call and respond to it. I see my role in this area as encouraging, supporting, affirming, resourcing and providing up-to-date information to our teachers in order to spread the Gospel message in the classroom. In this sense Religious Education must be more than teaching knowledge and skills of an academic discipline, it must be about a lived experience of passing on the faith; to challenge teachers and pupils to bring Christ alive in ways appropriate to their stage of faith, through encouraging compassion, tolerance, understanding and respect for each other and for all those whom they meet in their lives.”

A Million Welcomes to our new blog !

Greetings. For some time we have been anxious to start a website to help resource religious education teachers within our two areas of work. We were not comfortable with the formality of a website with the kind of restrictions and care one needs in any kind of institutional setting. We were excited when using a blog was suggested as it is both informal and personal, more interactive and in truth much more alive than any website  we have experienced so far. During this year we hope to hold discussions and share resources within the RC post primary sector and hope that it will be a new tool to assist in ongoing contact, discussion and the generous sharing of resources and practical advice.     Declan & Susan
