Above: An exciting new partnership between Catholic Education Wilcannia-Forbes and Campion College: Dr Gerard O’Shea, Dr Paul Morrissey, Bishop Columba Macbeth-Green, Mr Anthony Gordon
Recently, Bishop Columba Macbeth-Green was invited to celebrate the Opening Mass for the academic year at a college that promotes the study of the liberal arts, Campion College, Sydney. Bishop Columba preached powerfully to all the students about the importance of loving Christ and being faithful to his love in our everyday encounters.
Bishop Columba, Director of Catholic Education, Anthony Gordon and Assistant Director: Mission and Religious Education, Dr Gerard O’Shea were special guests at the matriculation ceremony that follows – a ceremony that initiates the new students into the life of the college.
During the ceremony, Anthony Gordon praised the new partnership between Catholic Education Wilcannia-Forbes and Campion College which has seen the development of an outstanding postgraduate Religious Education (RE) course, the Graduate Certificate of RE. The Campion College Grad Cert in RE is underpinned by the methodology of the groundbreaking new WF RE program, Educating in Christ. Dr Gerard O’Shea is a lecturer in the Grad Cert in RE and has been instrumental in its development in partnership with Dr Luciano Boschiero, Dean of Studies & Director of Operations and Dr Paul Morrissey, President. Teachers studying this course will have a deep and thorough understanding of the WF RE program.
The first unit of the Grad Cert in RE has begun with seven staff from the Diocese of Wilcannia-Forbes participating in a cohort of 29 students.
