Church and Vocation
The course outline presents a development of the Church through its 2000-year history focusing on the people of God who make up the Church. It, then, challenges the student to take an active role in the Church community through the living out of a personal vocation of service to God and the Church. This course was purposely developed as a challenge for the teacher and students through the study of these people to recognize the contemporary personalities and issues of importance in Church life today. A personal vocation in the church as single, lay, religious or cleric only makes sense in the context of the long tradition we share. Active participation by the students in the Church is to be the end result of this yearlong course.
