LITURGICAL SPIRITUALITY: LIVING THE WORSHIP OF THE CHURCH
This course will make the observation that spirituality, as "life in the Holy Spirit", is a sine qua non requirement of the act of worship. Far from passive observers or functionaries, clergy and laity alike are called to an active manner of participation that involves one's inner person and outer body. This inner spirituality, when integrated in worship, allows for a personal as well as communal eschatological vision of the divine life, which can also be applied effectively to the here and now. 
This course will be offered on Tuesday afternoons from 1:30-3:30pm for 14 weeks beginning January 15, 2013.  Professor: Fr. Stelyios Muksuris

  

  

INTRODUCTION TO ECUMENISM
This course will give the students an opportunity to research the Catholic teaching on ecumenical and inter-faith dialogue. Against the background of the mark of unity, the students will recognize both the richness of diversity and the disfigurement of disunity, which are visible in the Church.
This course will be offered on Tuesday evenings for 14 weeks from 7-9pm beginning January 15, 2013.  Professor: Fr. George D. Gallaro
