The theme of the 2014 CARFLEO Conference builds on the theme of last year’s Conference: “New Evangelization: Religious Education in the 21st Century” by tapping into the knowledge and expertise of one of Canada’s leading catechists.  Anne Walsh was the principal writer of the CCCB document On Good Soil, and she will share her rich background with conference delegates concerning the tasks of  evangelization and catechesis in general, and the Elementary Religious Education Policy Document in particular.

Ann Walsh


Anne is a native Newfoundlander.  She taught in the rural schools of her home province for seven years before pursuing a Master of Religious Education degree at the Faculty of Theology, St. Michael’s College, Toronto. While in graduate school, she became acquainted with the Redemptorists and worked in several of their youth and young adult programs.

Anne currently works as Director of Adult Faith Formation in the Archdiocese of St. John’s.   She holds a graduate Diploma in Fine Arts from the University of Calgary and a Canadian Certificate in Youth Ministry Studies from St. Michael’s College.

She is a candidate for the Doctor of Ministry degree at St. Stephen’s College in Edmonton. Anne is an avid reader, and crafter (scrapbooking, card-making, embroidery and painting), loves to walk and enjoys folk music (both listening and singing) and storytelling.
