Catholic School Trustees Mission
March 1 @ 8:00 am - April 30 @ 8:00 am ESTFree
In conjunction with the Saint Monica Institute and the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association (OCTSA), we are offering a one-day workshop providing specialized formation and training for any one exploring a vocation to become a Catholic school board trustee. Topics will include an exploration of Catholic social teaching as it relates to education; communications skills; collaboration with fellow trustees even amid disagreement; the day-to-day lives of trustees; the Catholic vision for the well-being of students, and more. Participants will leave the program prepared to successfully conduct their election campaign and to serve children, families, and community with charity and truth in this critical vocation.
WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM THE CATHOLIC TRUSTEES MISSION?
Catholics who have never considered running to be a trustee, but would like to learn more and explore this vocation;
Catholics who have decided to proceed, and need training and formation to run effectively; and
Incumbent trustees who want to prayerfully and thoughtfully deepen their vocations.
A confirmed date, a detailed syllabus, and registration details will be published shortly. The workshop will most likely take place in March or April, 2022.
