dc.description.abstract The term "Catholic school" may conjure up images of children praying with fervor to our hallowed Mother on aching knees, or being forgiven all sins with a wave and splash of holy water. The question is, what makes a school Catholic? How does faith permeate a school in terms of its documents, practices and the people involved? The purpose of this study is to investigate faith permeation in education. This case study examines how Catholicity is integrated into a small elementary school's mission statement, policies, curriculum, and staff/community relationships. Evidence of faith permeation will be examined through an evaluation of school documents, a questionnaire of staff and interviews of three teachers and three parents. Through a reflective narrative account, it explores the history of Catholic education in Alberta and the guiding literature that has shaped one school's perspective. I will unearth any evidence of faith permeation in the case study school, which will allow me to describe the purpose of Catholic education. This project attempts to address implications for the future of Catholic education in Alberta. en
