FINAL COMMUNIQUE

“The key to building up these communities and, at the same time, the re-affirmation
of the Catholic school’s … identity and specific mission, is the formation of
formators. The community of a Catholic educational institution must be formed by
teachers who possess solid, professional expertise that can claim autonomy and the
ability to plan and evaluate, form relationships, be creative, be open to innovation,
and show a sincere interest in research and experimentation. The teachers, however,
must also be fully aware of their role in education, of their own true identity, and
must feel compelled to love the service to culture that they render to society, carrying
it out with dedication and conviction. Today we perceive the urgent need for both
initial and on-going formation of educational leaders, teachers and educators …
Therefore, we must create a really and truly shared formation, which can absorb and
harmonize the specific formative contribution both of the religious and of the laity“.
