The European Coreteam, a group of interested head teachers and coordinators from across the European provinces, has been meeting regularly since the Heads’ Conference in Paris in 2009. They have created a website, led an international project on prayer and set up annual short conferences in Joigny for European Sacred Heart Educators since 2012. The Coreteam reports to the Head teachers after each of their meetings.


At present the Core team are:

Birgit Gmeindl-Oser (Head teacher, Austria); Christophe Corda (Head teacher, France); Maria Luisa Campa (Head teacher, Italy),  Joanna Attard Pulis & Elaine Siegler ( Headteachers, Malta) Christophe Blanchard (Head of the Tutelle, France); Hilary Thompson, (Network Coordinator, England and Wales); Sr Paqui Rodriguez RSCJ (Network Coordinator, Spain); Noreen Heenan (Network Coordinator Ireland/Scotland/ Malta), Maria Teresa Bernardi (Network Link, Italy), Reinhard Hallwirth (Archdiocese of Vienna).


We are very grateful to Sr Mary Shiel RSCJ (from Ireland/Scotland/Malta Network), Sr Gitti Linhart RSCJ (Austria),  Javier Usoz (Spain) and Ann Miller (USA), Facilitator who have worked as part of our team  and remain great friends of our network.


Our collaboration is based on a deep commitment to the mission and an abundance of good will! There is no finance for the project as yet, apart from a few donations.


The photo below is from our meeting in La Perverie, Nantes, France in November 2019. We had hoped our next meeting 'in person' was going to be in London in November 2020!  We are finally going to have a hybrid meeting with some colleagues together in Vienna and some at home. This will be in late June 2022. Our meetings since 2020 have been by Zoom, of course!
