Box of Joy: A Ministry for Your Whole Community This Fall
Tuesday, September 25, 2018
4:00 or 7:00 PM EDT
Gift giving is a wonderful, meaningful part of Christmas. Unfortunately, severe poverty deprives many children in developing countries of this joy. Their parents are too poor to provide even one simple Christmas present.
Through Cross Catholic Outreach’s Box of Joy ministry, you can ensure these children are not deprived of Christmas blessings this year. By packing a Christmas gift box and sponsoring the small cost of its shipment, you can deliver a Box of Joy to a child overseas who would otherwise receive nothing. Now is the time to start planning for this fall service project designed not only to serve those in need overseas, but to unite your Catholic community.
Teaching About Islam in Catholic Schools: Who Speaks for Islam?
Thursday, September 27, 2018
This series will provide Catholic school educators of all levels a platform to ask questions of scholars AND walk away with resources and content to equip the classroom teachers of our American Catholic schools to continue the mission of the Church to promote social justice and have meaningful dialogue with our Muslim brothers and sisters.
Civil Dialogue in a Multi-religious Country—Best Practices for Teachers
Monday, October 1, 2018
7:00 PM EDT
The religious landscape in America has shifted dramatically over the past four decades. With these changes and our current contentious political climate, communities have seen a rise in religious intolerance in the form of harassment, bullying, and hate crimes. Schools have not been immune to these incidents and teachers are more and more concerned about how to handle ‘heated’ issues in the classroom. This webinar will provide educators with best practices on how to create a classroom environment where dialogue can happen, how to guide student conversations toward complexity instead of conflict, and how to integrate essential skills of dialogue into lesson plans without taking too much precious time away from daily responsibilities. Join faculty members from the Religious Freedom Center of the Freedom Forum Institute, a nonpartisan national initiative focused on educating the public about the history, meaning, and significance of religious freedom and promoting dialogue and understanding among people of all religions and none. (This is Part I of a three part series.)
School to Home Communication for Catholic Schools
Wednesday, October 3, 2018
1:00 PM EDT
From sharing assignments and grades, to mass notifications and mobile apps, today's K-12 schools are challenged to utilize technology, on a budget, to meet the communication expectations of parents, students and teachers. From communicating with prospective students and families, to sharing school content during the school years, and then creating lasting bonds with valued alumni, Catholic educators must foster ongoing communications with everyone in their community. This webinar will offer tips and best practices for K-12 Catholic schools.
