Sculpture highlighting migration makes tour debut at Boston College
The Roche Center for Catholic Education is pleased to announce that the Angels Unawares sculpture by Canadian artist Timothy Schmalz will be installed at Boston College in O'Neill Plaza for the month of November. The sculpture is the only replica of the original casting that was installed in St. Peter's Square in Rome on September 29, 2019 – the 105th World Day of Refugees and Migrants.
A full slate of virtual lectures, panels and events featuring Boston College faculty will address the topic of global migration throughout the month. All events are free and require registration. Please join us!
Transforming Catholic Education
The Roche Center for Catholic Education forms Catholic school educators to become agents of change who work to create excellent Pre K-12 schools. Through our leadership programs, development of culturally and linguistically diverse schools, sustaining professional education, and research, we strengthen and transform Catholic schools and improve student outcomes.
Research and Resources
The Center's research team designs, administers, analyzes, and presents studies on the top issues facing Catholic education today, including development of the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools, Catholic Schools in an Increasingly Hispanic Church, and the design of networks that transform schools to be culturally and linguistically sustaining.
“What an incredible job you do of reaching out! The Roche Center is a beautiful example of what Jesus calls us to do, which is to live our faith and transform our lives as we get closer to loving others as Jesus loves us. This is the groundwork that allows us to become fully human to each other.”
