What Catholic Schools Can Do to Advance the Cause of the New Evangelization in the World
Wuerl, Donald
International Studies in Catholic Education, v5 n2 p127-143 2013
The Church brings us an encounter with Jesus and offers us an invitation to faith. It proclaims Christ's words of truth and life. This article seeks to explore the depths of these realities in the context of our culture, our society--a world not always prepared to hear and accept the message. It is precisely this context that has evoked the call for a New Evangelization. The Catholic school is the privileged atmosphere in which the message of faith may be welcomed into every aspect of life. Catholic schools form an environment in which faith and culture unite opening new doors for renewed catechesis, theological appreciation and practical application of the Good News.
