The Distinctiveness and Development of African Catholic Education
Time & Location
About the Event
While Catholic education in Africa is flourishing, it has not been studied and researched to the extent that it has in the global North. The foundation of Catholic education always remains the principles and values of the Gospel, and Vatican and synodal documents. However, cultural traditions and social conditions determine how each of these are uniquely embodied and expressed. Without advocating Afrocentrism or fragmented Catholicism, Fr. Gilbert will discuss why and how an authentic development of Catholic education in Africa must be grounded in its distinct African identity.
