The International Office for Catholic Education (“OIEC”) is made up of the national representative bodies of Catholic schools in each country (more than 110 countries). It has a worldwide membership that reflects the universality of the Catholic Church.
The Office thus welcomes 3 categories of members:
THE CONSTITUENT MEMBERS
These are the bodies recognized by the competent ecclesiastical authorities according to canon law (in principle by the National Conference of Bishops of each of these countries), and responsible for the coordination and/or representation of Catholic schools in a given country.
THE ASSOCIATE MEMBERS
These are the institutes of consecrated life and societies of apostolic life which are engaged in the educational service and which have an international extension.
THE COLLABORATING MEMBERS
These are natural or legal persons wishing to collaborate actively with the Office.
