Breathe - a day of affirmation and blessing for Educators
Since 2017, a team of educators involved in Catholic Charismatic Renewal have been meeting to plan
how to support faith-filled people working in schools, many of whom are isolated. The outcome of this
planning is a day conference entitled 'Breathe - a day of affirmation and blessing for Educators' to be
held at St Aloysius Church, 20 Phoenix Road, London NW1 1TA (5 mins from Euston Station) on
30th March 2019, 9.30am – 4.30pm. Keynote sessions will be delivered by David Wells (internationally
renowned speaker in faith and education), Fr Michael Hall (Director of Barnabas Education Services),
and Claire Fernandes (Teacher and Lecturer in Primary RE at St Mary’s University). One Hope Project will lead worship.
Please see this flyer.
Pope Benedict, addressing the Bishops of the Philippines in 2011, said "People are able to evangelise only when they
have been evangelised, that is, renewed spiritually through a personal encounter and lived communion with Jesus
Christ." 'Breathe' aims to offer educators whose lives have been transformed through a personal encounter with
Christ the opportunity to replenish their reservoirs of faith, hope and love, so that they can continue to be
effective witnesses in the schools where they work. Among the plethora of influences on young people, there is
a pressing need for an authentic witness of God's unconditional love. 'Breathe' seeks to address that need by
nourishing and inspiring the educators who are privileged to have regular contact with our young people.
We invite those who are working in and with education to come to this day and be refreshed by people who
understand the challenge. Relax, laugh, be inspired by talks, envisioned and most importantly, refilled by
the power of the Holy Spirit.
