Every three or four years the OIEC organizes a meeting of those responsible for Catholic education from all over the world. During the Congress, the delegates commit the OIEC to strong orientations for Catholic education, in line with the message of Pope Francis. This is an opportunity to think together about new educational paths, the promise of a humanization of the world.
Objectives of the OIEC Congress.
As stated in the OIEC Congress website. At the last OIEC Congress held in New York in 2019, they sought the possible commitments of the world’s Catholic schools for the promotion of the civilization of Love. Now engaged in the Global Educational Pact launched by Pope Francis, delagtes will meet in Marseille in December 2022 to continue the construction of the village of education, in connection with the contribution of each OIEC region (Europe, America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East), and in dialogue with educators of other faiths and religions.
When will it take place?
The congress will take place from the 1st to the 3rd of December in 2022, in Marselle, France.
To learn more about the congress, the OIEC has created a website with the event details, keynote speakers, and the program of the congress for each day.
