Together at One Altar Launch News Story
Parramatta Marist High Year 10 students during a Vocations Day at the school last year. The school will host the Wednesday 8 June launch of 'Together at One Altar', a Religious Education e-learning resource on Eucharist for Catholic students.

Parramatta Marist High at Westmead will host the launch of the first nationally-produced Catholic Religious Education (RE) resource on Wednesday 8 June.

The launch of the new web-based teaching and learning resources on Eucharist for Catholic student - 'Together at One Altar' - will be streamed live from Parramatta Marist High from noon on Wednesday. The 30-minute launch will feature a Year 10 RE lesson using Together at One Altar with students from Marist High and Catherine McAuley at Westmead, as well as from Hennessy Catholic College in Young, in rural NSW.

The e-learning resource has been sponsored by the National Catholic Education Commission (NCEC) and developed by a team of writers from Catholic Education Offices in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sale and Brisbane.

The design and construction of the website is by Fraynework Multimedia, a work of the Sisters of Mercy.

“This is the first nationally-produced Catholic RE resource in Australia,” NCEC Chair Therese Temby said.

“It is being launched to coincide with the first introduction in Parishes in Australia from Pentecost Sunday of the new translation of the Roman Missal, the prayers we use in our celebration of the Mass.

“A major project for NCEC at the moment is to ensure that RE and the religious dimension of the whole curriculum is properly recognised in the rollout of the new national Australian Curriculum. NCEC also believes that the creation of e-learning materials for RE is an urgent resource priority.

Mrs Temby said NCEC plans to add further material to the website as teachers contribute lessons and materials they have developed and used themselves.
