Thai Bishops Emphasize Catholic Identity in Schools

The Catholic Bishops Conference of Thailand stressed the importance of maintaining their schools’ Catholic identity while improving educational standards, according to CNA News.

Following a three-day seminar on Catholic education, Fr.Francis Xavier Deja Arpornrat, executive secretary general of the Thai bishops’conference, reportedly said that parents who send their children to Catholic schools do so because they trust that the education will be aimed at the whole person. He said that even while academic standards are increased, faithfulness must be adhered to.

Archbishop Francis Xavier Kriengsak Kovinthavanij of Bangkok, vice president of the bishops’ conference, said, “The Church is essentially the sign and instrument of announcing the Kingdom of God and all the disciples of Christ are called to announce and share the Good News to both those who have not yet heard and those who are not yet in the same sheepfold.”
