Office of Education ( website )

All PSR programs and Elementary Catholic Schools will be receiving in the mail or by delivery a copy of a DVD titled Close Encounters with the Beatitudes which the Office of Education was given permission by the Oblates to copy for each of you to share with your students.  The DVD is best suited for grades 4 – 7; however, if you feel it is meaningful and appropriate for all ages, please share with them as well.  It is only 14 minutes long but a great way to bring the Year of Mercy into our classrooms!

Another great Year of Mercy resource is available on our website – titled Living Mercy One Day at a Time @ http://www.diobelle.net/index.php/cat-cert/catechist-certification-opportunities .  Catechists can earn 1 elective credit upon viewing this webinar.

Coming Soon – ONLINE Diocesan Library!!!   We have tons of amazing resources in the Office of Education that we want you to know about so we have moved the Library ONLINE!  You will have access to all our DVDs, books, and Study Programs…at your fingertips!  More to come in March!
