I pray, you pray, we pray…

Aimed at young minds who are curious and in search of spirituality, the booklet “I pray, you pray, we pray…” is a thoughtful publication from the Office International de l’Enseignement Catholique (OIEC). It has been designed specifically to meet the needs of young people as part of their introduction to prayer and spirituality.

At a time when young people are increasingly solicited by various distractions, this booklet is a valuable tool to help them refocus on their interiority and discover the spiritual world. It is intended as an answer to children’s questions such as “What’s the point of praying?”, “Who do I pray to?” and “Will God answer my prayers?

Through richly illustrated pages and accessible texts, children are invited to explore prayer not only as an act of faith, but also as a privileged means of communication with the divine. The booklet encourages young people to turn to God with confidence and to see prayer as a special moment in the day when they can feel listened to and supported.

This booklet is therefore more than just a guide; it is a companion for young souls wishing to understand and integrate prayer into their lives.

Religion and Education :
Towards a Pact for Education

On 5 October 2021, Pope Francis invited the leaders of the world’s religions to reflect together on the only dynamism that can change the world we live in and bring it closer to the most precious ideals we can all share: fraternity, equality, freedom, a full life, a commitment to the poor, social transformation…

To highlight the Holy Father’s approach, the OIEC has produced an educational booklet for educational teams, inviting educational communities to work on the simple, profound and decisive ideas that emerged from this meeting. Let’s work together for this noble and urgent educational alliance!

BUILDING THE EDUCATIONAL PACT FROM THE TERRITORY: the experience of the region of Santander (Colombia)

This book inspires and guides us to transform education and, through it, to build together a new society that is more human, more fraternal, more supportive and more sustainable. The experience of the region of Norte de Santander (Colombia) will encourage Catholic schools to take the initiative to convene and promote together this local and global alliance.
The handbook will be of great help to them in mobilizing the different social sectors for a new and better education. Both push us to be open, to collaborate with others and to show that it is possible to change lives and contexts through education.

Lights for the way forward: Reflections for the Global Compact on Education

In summer 2020, the OIEC published with SM Editors a new book.  Luces para el camino: Pacto Educativo Global provides a collection of ideas from students, parents and leaders of Catholic education – including teachers and principals, on the challenges they see for Catholic education and the unique contributions of schools. The book was prepared as a contribution to the Global Compact on Education. We hope that the book will inspire and encourage readers to reflect, dialogue and collaborate in fulfilling the mission of Catholic schools.
