2012-2013 Waterloo Catholic District School Board Lecture
Educating the Whole Person: Our Hopes for Catholic Education
Named by Pope Benedict XVI to become a member of the Congregation for Catholic Education, Thomas Cardinal Collins hopes to see faith and reason working together. "We need to find out how to have secular excellence in terms of being able to deal with this world, but founded on a profound sense of the spiritual values and faith rooted in the Gospel." In this talk, Cardinal Collins will examine the various ways in which Catholic education makes a great contribution to our whole society and explore how it can strengthen the new evangelization.
