As educators in Catholic Schools in the Edmund Rice Tradition, we work towards offering a Liberating Education, based on a Gospel Spirituality, within an Inclusive Community committed to Justice and Solidarity. Drawn from Our Charter, such intention is Spirit led and demands the recognition of the dignity of all.
Formation supports the emergence and revelation of such intention, “…identifying those personal gifts which enable our fullest participation in mission". This participation also enables a discovery of who we are as human beings and who we are in God. As our Formation Framework states, “Formation is a lifelong process that gifts us with a deeper awareness of our union with the Mystery of the Divine.”
Our understanding of formation as a dynamic, emergent and fluid encounter is revealed in the visual of our Formation Framework.
