WFMP 2020 CANCELLATION NOTICE
Our Catholic Faith values human life. On behalf of the Board of Catholic Curriculum Corporation, it is with regret, with health and safety in mind, that we announce When Faith Meets Pedagogy 2020 is canceled due to the worldwide impact of Covid-19.
In these “uncertain” times, what is “certain” is the need to protect the interests of our students, faculty, staff and community at large through reasoned, reasonable and thoughtful consideration. Our entire Catholic education system has done so by following the guidance of our health professionals and the best science available. Catholic Curriculum Corporation is equally committed to following these practices and it is in this light of day that the difficult decision to cancel When Faith Meets Pedagogy 2020 was made.
We shall meet again in 2021. Keep Well, Stay Strong, Keep the Faith!
Michael Bator, Executive Director
Building and sustaining the Catholic capacity of educators through the development and provision of high quality Catholic curriculum, resources, support and professional development.

Guardians of Hope, Bearers of the Promise, Stewards of Creation
Pope Francis uses the term “guardian of hope” to honour Mary whose “yes” to God serves as an example to everyone. He describes her as a “woman of strength” who “supports and accompanies, protects and embraces.” The aspect, “Stewards of Creation” is from Laudato Si in which Pope Francis reminds us of our call to be “stewards of all creation.” Pope Francis calls us to acknowledge that “everything is connected” and asks us to answer the call to cooperate with God in the work of creation. Catholic schools are reminded of the important role they play in inspiring the youth of today. Like Mary, we need to say yes to the call to stewardship and to demonstrate commitment and strength as we address issues of environmental justice which impact the poor and vulnerable more than others. Catholic educators are called to look for signs of hope and to recognize the promise of the next generation!
