Catholic education is a lifelong process of human growth and development. It is more than schooling. It begins in the home, continues in the school and matures through involvement with the Christian community in the parish.
These three dimensions of home, school and parish must work together if Catholic education is to truly attain its goal of forming mature human persons in the image and likeness of Christ.
The Vatican’s Congregation for Catholic Education defines a school as “a place of integral formation by means of a systematic and critical assimilation of culture” (“The Catholic School,” 26). Integral means all the pieces are there and they fit together. Formation means education concerns the kind of person one becomes, not just what one knows.
In other words, it concerns intellectual and moral knowledge but also virtues habits of acting for the true, the good and the beautiful. Integral formation also includes spiritual formation.
It is the duty of Catholic faithful to promote catholic faith in their homes and schools, TivCatholicLink is contributing through its online contents, articles, videos, stories etc to educate young people in Tivland.Through Catholic education, students are exposed to the richness of the religious tradition. Music, Art, Literature, Drama and Ritual are rooted in the rich history of the Church, and find their truest glory as an expression of divine praise.
