Following the seven formation talks on addressing gender theory held between February and March this year, the Diocesan Catholic Education Commission of Macao (C.D.E.C.) has organised several teachers' training seminars for Catholic schools with the same title "The Vatican Responds to Gender Theory: 'Male and Female He Created Them.'" during June and August. The seminars were again delivered by the Reverend Bishop Stephen Lee Bun-Sang to the attending teachers from various Catholic Schools, who has made the contents from the document “Male and Female He Created Them” – Towards a Path of Dialogue on the Question of Gender Theory in Education published by the Dicastery for Culture and Education in February 2019 easy to comprehend. The seminars aim to address the challenges that gender theory poses to education today, and the true meaning of marriage and family through exploration of the values promoted by the Catholic theology of the body.
