Essentials for Catholic Identify
"Catholics must gladly acknowledge and esteem the truly Christian endowments from our common heritage which are to be found among our separated brethren. It is right and salutary to recognize the riches of Christ and virtuous works in the lives of others who are bearing witness to Christ, sometimes even to the shedding of their blood. For God is always wonderful in His works and worthy of all praise." Decree on Ecumenism, (Unitatis Redintegratio) 11/21/1965
"Essentials of Catholic Identity" is a program for Catholic School teachers who are not Catholic. Its purpose is to help them understand the unique climate of a Catholic school so that they may feel welcome, valued and empowered to share in the work of instilling Gospel values in our young people.
