A program for leaders in EREA schools and Edmund Rice communities
This two-day, residential program provides participants with the opportunity to meet and connect with other people called to the service of leadership. The program is intended for newly appointed leaders, those beginning their leadership journey with EREA, or emerging leaders nominated by their community.
A Call to Leadership will explore the rewards and challenges of our work today, applying the vision of the Gospel, Edmund Rice and the Christian Brothers to our own situations through dialogue, critical reflection and active learning. Participants will be invited to draw upon the experience of their peers in order to respond in concrete and innovative ways to the challenges they face as leaders.
The program draws from the call of Peter in Luke’s Gospel (5:1-11), where Jesus informs his first disciples that they will be catching people “alive” and leading them to the fullness of life that is God’s vision of love, justice, peace and compassion for all creation: the Reign of God. A Call to leadership offers participants an opportunity to explore how they might participate in working for the Reign of God as leaders in Edmund Rice communities.
