Every three or four years the OIEC organizes a meeting of those responsible for Catholic education from all over the world. In New York, more than 80 countries were represented. A rare opportunity to live a great experience of international exchange.

During the Congress, the delegates commit the OIEC to strong orientations for Catholic education, in line with the message of Pope Francis. This is an opportunity to think together about new educational paths, the promise of a humanization of the world.

In a fraternal and universal atmosphere, the Congress makes it possible to experience a highlight, in a synodal atmosphere. We experience Jesus Christ living in our midst, and we celebrate all the blessings he has bestowed upon us. We carry all of our works in faith.

OBJECTIVES OF THE OIEC CONGRESS

1-3 DEC 2022 MARSEILLE (FRANCE)

Build together the village of education.

At the last OIEC Congress held in New York in 2019, we sought the possible commitments of the world's Catholic schools for the promotion of the civilization of Love. Now engaged in the Global Educational Pact launched by Pope Francis, we will meet in Marseille in December 2022 to continue the construction of the village of education, in connection with the contribution of each OIEC region (Europe, America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East), and in dialogue with educators of other faiths and religions.

ALL COMMITTED TO THE GLOBAL EDUCATIONAL PACT

Together with Pope Francis, the OIEC is committed to the Global Educational Compact. This pact is a big challenge. It is a language to work together to humanize the world through education. At this congress, we will root our commitment, looking for new paths, and new educational ways, with the help of our Protestant, Orthodox, Muslim and Jewish brothers.

To meet in joy and hope, to bear witness to universal fraternity

To spiritually nourish with the Word of God and start again on a comforted mission

To develop our solidarity between the different regions of the world

To exchange educational experiences that we live both at the universal and regional levels

To invite other non-Catholic organizations  to come and share with us their hopes for building the world of tomorrow

To highlight the role of the OIEC as an organization that speaks to the world

To witness by our presence to the universality of the Church in the ecumenical spirit

To help the connection of our Establishments with other Establishments around the world.
