Yesterday, I attended brilliant workshop by an inspiring Catholic school teacher, Rachel Pitcaithly about, “Developing young people with Catholic Hearts and Minds”. She reported on extraordinary success in a Christchurch boys college in getting the boys praying and attending Mass as the new normal. Lots of ideas here to be trying back in Australia!

Some of the ideas that Rachel brought up yesterday have been discussed in this article in 2012 by Jonathan Doyle (with a significant contribution from Rachel), “Catholic Schools and the Sacrament of Reconciliation – A bridge too far?”
