Establishing a Catholic Dialogue Schools Network

Over 70 schools continued to engage enthusiastically with the Catholic Dialogue Schools project. Schools explored a contemporary, evidence-based approach to nurturing identity and inviting communities into a relationship with Jesus and the Catholic faith. During 2019, staff embraced the opportunity to participate in a master class with renowned experts from the Catholic University of Leuven, Dr Prof Didier Pollefeyt and Dr Jan Bouwens.

The Catholic Dialogue Schools Network continued to strengthen collaborative practices and support engagement of schools for goal setting, monitoring and reporting progress. This is a joint project with the Theology Faculty of the Catholic University of Leuven, all Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia dioceses, as well as individual dioceses in other states.
