This thesis documents Australian research into contemporary spiritual formation for Catholic school educators within a systemic context. It contributes to international research that identifies concern for an appropriate approach to formation for Catholic educators. This concern has been intensified by the rapidly declining number of religious and clergy, the rising expectation on 'lay' educators to model authentic Catholic leadership, growing understanding of the adult developmental journey, and shifts in perception and practice around spiritual formation.
