“To Teach Who Christ Is” comes from the writings of St. Eugene de Mazenod, founder of Cardinal George’s religious community, the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate. To “put on the mind of Christ” captures the spirit of the campaign that supports parishes and the formation of children and young people through the ministry of Catholic Education and Catechesis.
