CL 671 Carmelite Mysticism (2 credit hours), taught by Dcn. Tracy Jamison, Ph.D., will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 7:00pm to 9:40pm, May 18 through June 17. An overview of the spiritual life will be presented and discussed according to the mystical doctrines of Saint Teresa of Avila and Saint John of the Cross, as synthesized by Blessed Titus Brandsma, OCarm, and Blessed Marie-Eugene of the Child Jesus, OCD, who describe and understand spiritual development as the ordinary outcome of the consistent practice of the theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity. Basic practical norms for a truly devout Catholic practice of vocal, mental, and contemplative prayer will be introduced and explained. Participants will need to possess sufficient leisure time during the week to complete the assigned readings and the study questions for each class.
S 617 Theology of Evangelization (2 credit hours), taught by Alan Mostrom, Ph.D., will be held on Monday and Thursday evenings, 7:00pm to 9:40pm, May 17 through June 16. This course takes a systematic, historical, and practical approach to the theology of evangelization. We consider what the Christian obligation to evangelize reveals about the Trinity, Christ, the mission of the Church, the moral life, and last things. After considering the theological foundations of evangelization we survey the history of evangelization from a variety of perspectives – personal, diocesan, and missions to evangelized nations. Finally, the course synthesizes the theology of evangelization and the history of evangelization with the aim of developing concrete strategies for evangelization today.
LPC 222 Tribunal Training Course (2 certificate hours), taught by Sister Victoria Vondenberger, RSM, JCL, will be held on Saturday mornings, 9:30am to 12:10pm, May 15 through July 18. This course will prepare you to become a certified procurator/advocate to present marriage cases to the Tribunal. You will learn basic information about marriage cases, how decisions are made about what kind(s) of case(s) must be presented, and information about some of the more common reasons why a marriage might be declared invalid. You also will learn about marriage preparation, requirements for a valid marriage, the organization of a Tribunal (Church court), Tribunal procedures as well as the roles of the various officials, and the forms needed for each kind of case.
