Catholic school teachers meet

Almost 1,000 Catholic educators gather for Faith Development Day 2012 at St. Matthew's Parish
Sister Anne Bryant Smollin, CSJ, of Albany, N.Y., speaks at the Catholic Independent
Schools' Faith Development Day at St. Matthew's Parish Aug. 30. She told the educators in
attendance how they can use joy, humour, and laughter to deal with the stresses
of their daily life and their vocation as educators. Special to The B.C. Catholic.
Doug Lauson, superintendent of the Catholic Independent Schools of the Vancouver Archdiocese, contributed a story to The B.C. Catholic about the district's Faith Development Day at St. Matthew's Parish:
The year's first official professional development day for the 49 schools of the archdiocese began with the celebration of Mass by the archbishop, with Father Augustine Obiwumma, pastor of St. Matthew's Parish, and several other priests of the archdiocese concelebrating.
In his opening address Archbishop Miller began the day by unveiling two archdiocesan initiatives to celebrate the Year of Faith proclaimed by Pope Benedict XVI. The Year of Faith will begin around the world Oct. 11, the 50th anniversary of the opening of the second Vatican Council, and end Nov. 25, 2013, the Feast of Christ the King.
