The Formation Institute for Religion Educators (FIRE) is the Graduate Program of the Theology Department of the School of Humanities, Ateneo de Manila University and is supported by Loyola School of Theology. It offers a scholarship program designed at forming highly qualified and motivated teachers and catechists personally committed to the vocation of educating Filipinos in the Christian Faith.
FIRE responds to the pressing need of the Catholic Church in the Philippines and of the nation, for competent teachers in Religious Education at all levels, and for Religion coordinators in schools, parishes, and dioceses. Today’s urgent call is for “education towards authentic Filipino maturity in the faith.”

CRITICAL THINKING &/vs. CATHOLIC RELIGIOUS EDUCATION
(A workshop on the possibility and value of critical thinking in the Catholic religion classroom)
Johnny Go, SJ, EdD
Assistant to the President for Education Development
Faculty, Department of Education
May 8, 2017, 8:30am-4:30pm
SS Conference Rm 3 & 4
This workshop invites Catholic formators and religious educators to review their programs and practices in light of the Church’s desire to develop their students’ critical sense.
Is it possible for a religion teacher to promote religious critical thinking among students? Is critical thinking even desirable in our religion classes given the following apparent obstacles:
(a) the confessional goal of our curriculum –i.e., to impart Church teachings and to incorporate students as believing and practising members of the Church,
(b) the central role of authority in the Catholic doctrine of revelation–i.e., the official magisterium of the Church, and
(c) the possibility of dissent among students both in the grade school and high school?
The workshop will propose for discussion some concrete examples of how initial steps can be taken towards an approach in Catholic religious education that is more conducive to critical thinking.
