General Assembly of the CEEC – Tirana (Albanie)
From March 24th to 26th, the CEEC brought together it s General Assembly in Tirana, Albania. It was an opportunity for the National Commission for Catholic Education in Albania (Komisioni Kombetar i Edukimit Katolik Shqiptar, KKEKSH) to fully integrate in the activities of the CEEC and to manifest its existence as a national organisation for catholic teaching in Albania. Albania lived many years of Communist dictatorship, during which the Catholic Church has been violently persecuted. We were able to observe this during a visit to the prison of the martyrs of Skhödder in the presence of Monsignor, Bishop of Skhödder. Today, there are more than forty Catholic schools in this country. At the General Assembly of the CEEC, a round table was devoted to the presentation of the situation of the Catholic schools in this country. Next General Assembly of the CEEC will be held in November in Ljublijana, Slovenia.
