No matter which level of endeavor a woman desires, this program will help her attain her goal, and assist her to “help transform the world one woman at a time."
Course Schedule: June 19 – 23, 2017
Course Title: Toward A Catholic Understanding of Woman
(2 credits) (This is a prerequisite course before any other course can be taken).
Course Instructor: Monica M. Miller, Ph.D.
Course Description: An exploration of the anthropology of the female person in light of her innate authority demonstrated through her influence, power, and effect as portrayed in Sacred Scripture, Church teaching, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the dynamic of covenant.
Course Title: Learning from the Past: Words and Wisdom of Holy Women through the Ages (2 credits)
Course Instructor: Father Deacon Joshua Genig, Ph.D.
Course Description: This course will explore the words and wisdom of some of the holy women down through the ages, both before the time of Christ and after. Yes, we will look at some of the more famous saints and holy women, but also those of whom we are less aware. The goal will be to see in them, their stories, and the ways in which they lived as leaders in their own day and their own way a place for our own story of faith as, through their holy prayers, we seek to grow in Christ and be formed into the active leaders He wishes us to be.
