Approximately 1 in 2 parents in Ontario, Canada, regardless of personal religious beliefs, now choose to enroll their children in a public Roman Catholic secondary school, a system that has historically struggled for recognition and independence as equally legitimate across all of Canada. Students in modern Roman Catholic schools regard religion and spirituality as critical aspects to their individual identities, yet within the colonial framework of this Euro-centric school system, youth struggle to achieve a level of inclusivity and acceptance that modern religious identity affords. Using a critical ethnographic methodology within a single revelatory case study, this book presents the voices of youth as the most critical voice to be heard on identity and identity in faith in Ontario Roman Catholic schools. Through the approach of an anti-colonial discursive framework, incorporating a theology of liberation that emphasizes freedom from oppression, the voice of Roman Catholic secondary school youth are brought forth revealing their struggle for acceptance in a system that intentionally hides diverse religious identities, outside that of being Roman Catholic.
