HWCDSB :: Teachers come together for a “Celebration of Catholic educationâ€, 10 April 2011 [cached]
From left to right, Chairperson Patrick J. Daly, Fr. Ray Carey, President OECTA Hamilton-Wentworth Secondary Unit Sergio Cacoilo, and President OECTA Hamilton-Wentworth Elementary Unit Brian Harrington.
That message was reinforced by Reverend Raymond P. Carey, PhD, who joined the gathering for a presentation on "Catholic Education: An Enterprise of Shalom."
"Every single thing we do in Catholic education begins and ends with the first line of the Apostles' Creed," said Carey.
That line reads: I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
"Every single thing we are doing in our Catholic schools is linked to the work of our creator God who has poured out his love for us in his son Jesus Christ."
Our work in Catholic education is the same as the work of our creator God, said Carey, a clinical psychologist and priest with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Portland, Oregon.
"We are partners of creation," he noted, suggesting our task is to create a community of believers formed in the faith.
"We are about the business of opening up young minds through the extremely incredible grace of he who blesses us."
But we should be careful not to cheapen the notion of God's will, Carey cautioned.
"We've reduced it to the commonplace, to the prosaic," he said, citing usages like "I hope I find a parking place, God willing" or "It's God's will if I become a priest."
Ascribing everything as God's will is playing fast and loose with the grace of freedom, he suggested.
"Being in balance, having integrity, being what God meant for us to be is part of God's plan," said Carey.
"There are four ways in which we open up to the nature of shalom, as put forth in scripture," said Carey.
This passage from Scripture, said Carey, gives a good sense of God's will for Catholic teachers and for those who minister in Catholic education.
The first way in which we open ourselves to this shalom is through self. It is God's will that we should take delight in God's creation of our selves.
This has nothing to do with narcissism, said Carey, and everything to do with shalom.
"It's gorgeous. It takes all the pop psychology on self-esteem and gives you the roots of what we are," he rhapsodized.
It is God's manifest in Hebrew and Christian covenant that we would be in a relationship with our neighbour, explained Carey.
"We are to be ministers of harmony with those who are the least powerful among us," he reminded his audience.
But we have to be mindful we don't go too far, said Carey, noting that despite all the safety provisions we have in place, bullying is now one of the greatest millennial threats.
"In Catholic schools, we need to make sure we're creating a place of safety," he added. "Schools need to model themselves on what it means to be a community of shalom."
And lastly, Carey invited his audience to seek shalom with God.
"It is God's will that we are absolutely clear that we are loved by God," he said, "a God who welcomes us as co-creators of this graced existence of shalom."
Urging the teachers to live a life of gratitude, Carey suggested the key to achieving this is generosity.
"It's the work God gives us," said Carey. "That's the privilege. No one does it for us."
He concluded his presentation with a story of a priest colleague who ran a mission for homeless people. Every morning, this priest would prepare sandwiches to dispense to the street people. After reading about his work in the newspaper, Fr. Carey sent a congratulatory note to his friend along with a generous cheque to help with his ministry.
The cheque, said Carey, was returned with a note that said, "Make your own damn sandwiches."
"No one does it for us," laughed Carey. "That's the privilege."

HWCDSB :: Covenantal ethics keep Catholic education healthy, 11 July 2010 [cached]
If the only difference between a public school and a Catholic school were the crucifix on the wall, as an Ottawa newspaper suggested, then we would be right to close Catholic schools, said Father Ray Carey.
Fr. Carey, a clinical psychologist and a priest with the Archdiocese of Portland, Oregon was invited to speak on Covenantal Ethics to employees of the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board in four half-day sessions on November 26 and 27, 2010. Covenantal ethics, suggested Carey, can be a useful tool for Catholic educators whose belief system is foundationally rooted in the Jesus issue.
"The value system of Jesus Christ is what we are about," said Carey. "A first and primary measure of the efficacy of the enterprise has everything to do with fidelity to Jesus' way of respecting people."
He spoke about society's reliance on contracts, which set out the minimum requirements expected of each person in an organization.
"Thank God our God is not about contracts," he said.
Something can be legal and moral and yet be unethical, noted Carey. Ethics are about doing the right thing for all involved.
There are three main principles in ethics that, if followed, will raise the ethical standards of the enterprise. The first is agency, a word derived from the Latin verb 'agere' which means to act. One of the ways to reverence others, said Carey, is to be as clear as possible about "whose agent is who? Teachers often mistakenly believe they are agents of the student when in fact they are always agents of the school board. As agents of the board, teachers are required to embrace the decisions of the board even if they don't believe in them themselves.
"Ethics will keep you healthier," suggested Carey, "otherwise you're flying by the seat of your pants."
The second principle is fiduciary trust. Unlike other forms of trust, fiduciary trust is not earned, it comes automatically to anyone in a role or position where there is a power differential. Role-based fiduciary trust, indicated Carey, requires that the person in authority do two key things: commit to doing the very best they can; and do no harm.
"One of the great privileges of being a Catholic school educator is that one has the opportunity to embrace fiduciary trust responsibilities within the context of a covenantal community," said Carey.
Accordingly, he said, fulfilling one's fiduciary responsibilities can help increase the quality of one's work ethic as well as one's satisfaction with his or her chosen profession.
"Fiduciary trust is that which will lift you up and freshen the fire in your belly that brought you into Catholic education in the first place," said Carey.
But, he added, being in a position of fiduciary trust means that you don't violate that trust in any way, through exploitation or self-advancement.
"You have a moral compass," said Carey.
A helpful guideline for deciding whether to grant, receive or share a confidence relates to a person's "right to know" and "need to know," suggested Carey. He also made the distinction between public information and personal information, noting that personal information is information of a private nature that belongs to someone else. Before a second party seeks information from another or shares a person's personal information with a third party, the person should first consider whether he/she ethically has a right to know or a need to know.
With the "right to know", the principle of agency kicks in. In other words, as an agent of the principal, everything that a teacher knows, his or her principal has a right to know if that knowledge is necessary to the principal carrying out his or her duties. A further concern, noted Carey, relates to the power differential between two persons. The person with more power must be careful not to seek information from someone who is not free to choose not to disclose that information, such as a teacher who asks personal questions of a student out of curiosity or prurient interest.
Another source of confusion can take place when a teacher may have a legitimate need to know but has not established the right to know - as in the situation where parents share personal information with the principal but for some reason chooses not to share that information with their child's classroom teacher. In such a scenario, Carey pointed out, the principal has both a right to know and a need to know. The teacher may have a need to know but does not have the right to know.
There are circumstances under which a confidence may be broken, noted Carey, listing the threat of grave bodily harm, the threat of suicide, and physical, sexual or emotional abuse of a child. In these types of situations, a teacher or principal is obligated to disclose any confidences that will result in the safety or well-being of the child.
"That's what prevents cults," said Carey.
"It may be painful but you're taking care of covenantal ethics."
Carey concluded his presentation by explaining that discipleship in Jesus Christ is a gift of God's own grace and favour. The mission of Catholic schools is to equip and enable students to be faithful disciples with skills to engage the world community.
"Those responsible for Catholic schools have the obligation and privilege of inviting students to participate in and to contribute to building a highly ethical covenantal community in word and action."
"My hope for you is this," Carey addressed his audience.
