A program for senior leaders in EREA schools and Edmund Rice communities
This three-day, residential program brings together leaders from across the EREA community, providing opportunities for personal reflection, dialogue with other leaders, and exploration of the stories that shape the way we understand our identity and mission. This program invites participation from those who have previously completed A Call to Leadership – Into the Deep.
The program encourages participants to consider how they might “speak with authority as a prophetic voice in the Church and the world” (The Good Seed Will Grow). It asks us to consider the challenges facing our communities and the world in which we live and the ways in which we might respond, locally and globally. It also offers the opportunity to experience contemporary responses to the pressing issues of our times within the wider Edmund Rice network.
A Vision for Liberation calls us to take seriously the words of the prophet Isaiah, who reminds us of God’s vision of compassion, justice and peace that is at the heart of the Gospel: “Is not this the fast that I have chosen: to unlock the shackles of injustice, to loosen the ropes of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke” (58:6).
