Evangelization, Catechesis, Catholic Education

Canada’s Catholic Colleges and Universities

“The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops acknowledges its right and duty to promote Catholic universities and colleges, as well as to foster their excellence through pastoral leadership and public signs of support. By their Catholic character, these institutions must keep in close link with the country’s bishops and, in a manner appropriate to their intellectual purpose, take their part in the Church’s common mission, in particular as regards the task of evangelization, the development of mature faith and moral discernment, as well as dialogue of the faith with contemporary culture” (Ordinances Issued by the CCCB in view of the Correct Application of Ex corde ecclesiae; cf. Apostolic Constitution of Pope Saint John Paul II Ex corde ecclesiae on Catholic Universities ).
