The Liturgical Year (L-700)

This course will examine the Church's Liturgical Year. As we explore the structure of the calendar we will see how we are immersed into Jesus' life through our Sunday celebrations, the Liturgical Seasons, Ordinary Time, and the Lives of the Saints in the Sanctoral cycle. Celebrating the Liturgical Year draws us deeper and deeper into our personal encounter with God.

Introduction to Philosophy (T-1000)

Much of the Church's theology is based in philosophy. This course will present the major themes and concepts of philosophy.  We will also be including free will, metaphysics, epistemology, as well as the existence of evil and God.

Christian Initiation (L-200)

This course is designed to present to each individual the concept of Christian Initiation as an order of stages and their appropriate rites; including the Rite of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. It will present the history as well as the status and visions of the process.

Mariology (T-730)

Mariology is the theological study of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our faith is built upon the first 'Yes' by Mary. Through the eyes of the Church, this course will present the teachings on Mary, teachings on Jesus, as well as redemption and grace. Mary will be connected by scripture, traditions, and the Doctrine of Faith.

Spirituality Spring Retreat (S-100)

The Wounded Healer presented by Br. Michael Whitman.

No one escapes life without suffering. If we are really awake, it may even teach us something. None of us looks for pain or to be wounded, and yet, it falls upon us. Sometimes it will appear as an unexpected life event or something we do or is done to us. This retreat will reflect on our woundedness. It will explore how it can teach us to be healers.
