SHOULD WE TAKE SACRAMENTS OUT OF THE SCHOOLS?
REIMAGINING SACRAMENTAL PREPARATION
MAY 12TH & 13TH 2017
This year's McAuley Conference, now in its tenth year, will explore the issue of sacramental preparation of children. Currently there is considerable public debate as to how best to do this and particularly contentious is the question of what role the school should play in the process. A panel of national and international experts in the area of sacramental preparation will explore these questions with participants over the days of the Conference.
The Conference will be of particular interest to parents, teachers, parish clergy, pastoral workers and members of diocesan and parish liturgy teams.
