Regis Professors Team Up with Faith Animators at Durham Catholic District School Board

Professors Michael Kolarcik, S.J and Gordon Rixon, S.J. team up in January to conduct two seminars based on the St. John's Bible Heritage edition for the faith animators of the Durham Catholic District School Board. In the first seminar, Gordon introduced some ideas about religious art and the Illuminated Word, and trained a small group of eight faith animators to conduct peer seminars based on turning the pages of the Bible. In the followup seminar, Michael conducted a master class on the Book of Job and the eight animators facilitated small seminars for over forty of their peers. The response to the two days was very enthusiastic. Forty four faith animators have been invited to create similar faith education experiences in their schools, which will link Regis personnel with local resources to reach out to parents and students.
