About the event

A CONFERENCE FOR CATHOLIC EDUCATORS: Exploring one of the key issues of our time

Are there really only two sexes? What is gender, exactly? What can I legally say and do as an educator? What does a healthy psychology of sexuality look like? How can we help children who demonstrate confusion? How does sexuality affect our ability to become disciples?

Those who are involved with the formation and education of young people today are facing the difficult task of continuing to evangelise and teach in the midst of a growing trend of confusion surrounding personal identity, particularly sex and gender. Join us for a 2-day, multidisciplinary conference on these special topics, where we will hear from experts in the fields of philosophy, psychology, spirituality, law, and other related areas.

The conference, which is open to teachers, parents, chaplains, catechists, pastors, and anyone interested in learning more, aims to equip Catholic Christian educators and formators with knowledge of and confidence in the Church’s full and positive vision of the human person in his or her sexuality.
