2024 Catholic Education Symposium

Friday, February 9th - Saturday, February 10th

Corpus Christi Parish Hall - 2707 34 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6T 1P5

Catholic schools participate in the evangelizing mission of the Church. As such, in order for teachers to implement the evangelistic mission of Catholic schools, they themselves need an integral formation that puts every dimension of their human nature—body, emotions, will, and intellect—in ongoing Communion with Christ through His Church.

To that end, ACSTA has taken the initiative to facilitate Teachers as Missionary Disciples: Forming Witnesses for Catholic Schools. This Symposium invites the Catholic education community to engage in discussion that will inform the development of a conceptual framework to assist the Church and Her schools in Alberta, Yukon and the NWT in providing for the formation of pre- and in-service teachers. The Symposium will bring together leading researchers in the field, who will make presentations of their conceptual and empirical work and engage the community in formulating possible structures, best practices, and strategies for faith formation for staff.

Registration is now closed.
