Written by Msgr. Marcus Stock for the Bishops of England and Wales for use in teacher formation.
Archbishop Vincent Nichols writes, “I welcome warmly this document Christ at the Centre which puts forward, in a succinct yet rigorous manner, a summary of the Church’s reasons for providing Catholic schools. It shows the depth of the commitment of the Catholic Church to education, not understood in some narrow sense but in the broadest and best possible way.
This document makes clear that Catholic education is inspired by a vision of life seen whole. Catholic faith tutors us in reaching out to the fullness of human experience and to its expression in a community of life in society.”
