Called to participate in the salvation of the world through education and the culture of dialogue: “Come, follow me”

Lights for the Path Ahead: Reflexions for the Global Compact on Education
OIEC published with SM Editors a new book in the summer of 2020. Luces para el camino: Pacto Educativo Global provides a collection of insights from students, parents, and Catholic education leaders – including teachers and principals, about the challenges they see for Catholic education and the unique contributions of the schools. The book was prepared as a contribution for the Global Compact on Education. We hope that the book will inspire and encourage readers into reflection, dialogue and collaborations to fulfill the mission of Catholic schools.
A presentation of the book can be found here (only available in Spanish): Presentation book
