Catholic School Trustee Workshops
April 23 @ 9:00 am - May 28 @ 4:00 pm EDT
In the lead-up to Ontario’s municipal elections in October 2022—including elections for Catholic school board trustees—we are pleased to present a special edition of our Catholic Leaders Mission program, workshops for those discerning whether to seek election as Catholic school board trustee through a deeper look at this crucial vocation for Catholic education. The workshops are presented in both English and French, in partnership with l’AFOCSC, the OCSTA, and the St. Monica’s Institute for Education and Evangelization: the French-language workshop will be present April 23, 2022, and the English-language version on May 29.
Each one-day workshop will offer specialized formation and training for those who are exploring a vocation to become a Catholic school board trustee. Formation will include an exploration of Catholic social teaching as it relates to education, communications skills, collaboration with fellow trustees even amid disagreement, the lived experiences of trustees, an exploration of the trustee vocation, a Catholic vision for the well-being and human flourishing of every student, understanding the importance of publicly funded Catholic education, and more. Participants will graduate from the program prepared to successfully run for election, succeed, and serve with charity and truth in this critical vocation for the good of Catholic youth, families, and our community’s apostolic future.
