This Is Our Faith will be launched in the presence of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland in Edinburgh on Monday 7th November with an audience of invited guests, including pupils, teachers, parents and clergy. This significant occasion marks the start of a series of such events in every Diocese, details of which will be announced soon.
The main purpose of these events is to give due attention to this significant new document which, with approval granted by the Holy See on 4th August 2011, now governs the teaching of religious education in Scotland’s Catholic schools. This is the first religious education syllabus to be originated wholly in Scotland and designed to meet the needs of young people in Scotland. The Holy See’s granting of the Decree of Recognitio is a rare and momentous achievement and pays testimony to the great efforts of so many people who have contributed to the development of the new syllabus.
Copies of This Is Our Faith will be available for purchase from Tuesday 8th November.
