The Evangelium Institute carries on the work which the Archdiocese of Omaha sought to bring to the Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese through the Ignite the Faith Campaign.
EI staff provides formation in the Catechism of the Catholic Church as well as Spiritual Formation to teachers of the archdiocese, with an emphasis on their personal relationships with Jesus Christ and an encouragement towards personal prayer.
Starting with the 2019-2020 academic year, EI provides 24 hours of contact time with each teacher which will include dynamic catechesis and can include a retreat experience run by EI staff. Also, small group formation and Bible Study is facilitated by EI staff in order to create and foster an atmosphere where teachers can speak about and share their faith with their colleagues.
St. Jean Baptiste de La Salle taught that Catholic school teachers are like Guardian Angels to their students. Charged with guiding them in right action and with the formation of their souls, our Catholic school teachers are worth our investment of time and concern.
It is for them and for the future Church they are forming in their classrooms that the Evangelium Institute does what it does. For us, it has been an honor to work with them.
