Witness Statement For Those Who Serve in Catholic Education

The mission of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is the mission of the Catholic Church, to reveal the God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to all people and to teach them about the fullness of His love. "Indeed the primordal mission of the Church is to proclaim God and to be His witness before the world" (GDC). Catholic education shares in a special way in the Church's mission by proclaiming and witnessing Jesus Christ and His teachings.

Catholic education, which includes education, formation, and transformation, exists in order to evangelize. Two important elements that make up the process of evangelization are proclamation and witness. It is essential therefore, that those who serve in Catholic education to proclaim Jesus Christ, His life and ministry, present the Catholic faith in its fullness, and be Christ's witness to the world.
