The CBCK Committee on Education, Holding the 3rd Granum Seminar

 

The CBCK Committee on Education (President: Most Rev. Boniface Choi Ki-san) held the 3rd Granum seminar at the Catholic University of Korea on September 13, 2014 with the theme, “Commitment to a Happy School for All’.

 

As Granum means a grain of wheat in Latin, the seminar implies that each educator plays a role as grain of wheat in the world.

 

The purposes of the Granum Seminar are to build and activate a network among educators working in field, and to search for educational methods in conformity with teachings of Catholic Church. It is an opportunity for educators to share their efforts and experiences for evangelization, and their educational methods.

 

In this seminar there were almost 100 participants, who are teachers and professors at all the level of educational institutions including kindergartens, and the persons concerned.

 

Rev. John the Baptist Junyang Park, giving a lecture with the theme for the seminar, “Theological Reflection on Joy, Happiness, and Truth”, said, “The teenagers who leave the Church and abandon their faith need attentive care for them.” He also underlined that Catholic educators are responsible for leading them to the Lord as they are wandering around in spiritual poverty and a sense of alienation.

 

The participants had a time sharing their own experiences of putting into teachings of Catholic Church and presenting cases of evangelization. This seminar was one more step for educators to build and activate the networks among them.
