Dr. Cattaro Presents on Catholic Schools and Leadership

Dr. Jerry Cattaro, executive director of the Center for Catholic School Leadership, presented at two conferences this summer in Vienna and Paris.

Teachers, administrators, and staff of St. Paul’s, a new Catholic school in Norway, gathered at the Monastery of the Augustinian Monks of Klosterneuburg, Austria to discuss the mission and faith-based identities of Catholic schools. The school was funded with the help of the Monastery as part of their evangelizing activities in Norway.

The majority of teachers at St. Paul’s are non-Catholic, so the conference aimed to introduce topics such as Catholic social justice teachings and basic faith beliefs and rituals.

Dr. Cattaro also presented on the Formation of Catholic School Leaders for the Vatican in June at UNESCO in Paris.  The conference was part the leadup to the World Congress “celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of the Second Vatican Council’s Declaration Gravissimum Educationis and the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Apostolic Constitution Ex Corde Ecclesiae. As part of these celebrations, the Congregation aims to re-energize the Church’s commitment to education.”

The June conference “aimed at celebrating the seventieth anniversary of UNESCO’s foundation, as well as the fiftieth anniversary of the Second Vatican Council’s Declaration Gravissimum Educationis – a witness to our shared aim of promoting education for all worldwide.”
