Upcoming Webinars

Creating the Written Strategic Plan for Development/Advancement

Many Catholic schools have seen the value of having a Long-Range Plan in place in order to guide the school into the future for the next five years or more. Sometimes these plans are developed and created through accreditation processes or through diocesan-directed initiatives or through the school launching into their own strategic planning process. However, many Catholic schools would be greatly served if they developed a specific plan for their development/advancement efforts. This webinar presentation will explain the value, the process, and the implementation in creating your Written Strategic Plan for Development/Advancement through the meaningful involvement of many people in your Catholic school. Step by step, each attendee will learn how to create their own plan of action.

21st Century Evangelization: Igniting the Catholic Imagination of the School Community

Pope Francis continually invites us to seek innovative ways to infuse our church and school communities with the joy of the Gospel as revealed in the Sacred Teachings and Traditions of the Catholic Church. Our Catholic schools are called to present this joyful message in a relevant, accessible and integrated manner. Due to the complexities of our 21st century world, including rapid technological advancement, changing family dynamics and competing socio-religious ideologies, nurturing the faith of our school communities requires an ongoing commitment to fostering the Catholic imagination of the young. The very heart of this imagination is a sacramental vision of life – an ability to see depth, possibility and the eternal in both the ordinary and extraordinary. Catholic schools must be communities of faith where the young are encouraged to develop a sacramental vision of life. This goal can be accomplished by implementing programs and lesson planning that bridge the cognitive and experiential realms of faith development and learning. This particular webinar will focus on practical ways to capture the sacramental imagination of students through authentic religious instruction, cross-curricular learning and virtue development. During the webinar, administrators and teachers will garner a variety of programmatic and pedagogical practices that have proven effective in igniting the Catholic imagination of the school community.
