Upcoming Graduate Classes

ICT 502: Ministry of the Word

Pre-Req (required for all students with no formal college theology)

This course serves as a pre-requisite to prepare for graduate studies, for deeper study in the nature of catechesis and theology. This course provides a survey of the content, purpose and functions of the ministry of the word, the particular focus on the nature of catechesis and theology. "The ministry of the word, within the context of evangelization, transmits Revelation, through the Church, by using human words (GDC #50)." This course surveys the history, methods, content and contemporary practice of catechesis, inspired by God's Pedagogy of Revelation and the Response of Faith. This course introduces the student to the graduate study of sacred theology by examining the nature and mission of theology as an ecclesial vocation, in light of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith's 1990 document, "Instruction on the Ecclesial Vocation of the Theologian" (Donum Veritatis). The nature of theology is examined as a "science" in the classical sense, that is, an intellectual habit which certitude is available through rational reflection, in the light of faith, on divine revelation
