Charting New Horizons
Melbourne and Olympic Parks Function Centre
7 - 9 September 2018
150 years ago Brother Ambrose Treacy and his companions landed on an Ancient land to begin a new mission. In 2018, in the Year of Youth, you are invited to reimagine this mission as we journey into the future.
The purpose of the 2018 Congress is to gather the EREA community and its partners, reflect upon EREA’s mission as it has been expressed since the 2012 Congress and to determine the broad directions of EREA in the next period of its story.
Congress delegates will include representatives from EREA Member and Associate Schools, EREA Council, Board, Executive and National Office Teams, Christian Brothers and other Religious Institutes, Catholic Education as well as invited guests from a range of international and local communities and traditions.
The EREA Congress will provide the opportunity to:
• engage in dialogue about the experiences of EREA since the last Congress
• identify and celebrate the significant areas of growth and transformation
• vision the new horizons for EREA within the context of the broader Australian Church
The four EREA Charter touchstones, Gospel Spirituality, Justice and Solidarity, Inclusive Community and Liberating Education, will be used to frame the Congress program and associated symbols and imagery will use the language of journey, exploration, charts and maps.
