For joint-program students participating in Chaplaincy Institute (ChI) modules as part of the Interfaith Studies Certificate. In the month of January, we explore Christianity through the lens of Catholicism and Orthodox Christianity. In addition to introductory classes on Catholicism, students will explore the teachings of the women Christian mystics, the sacrament of communion, and the sacred scriptures of Christianity. They also will get an overview of the professional field of spiritual care, with a specific focus on tending to Roman Catholics. For field learning experience, students attend Sunday church service. This course is only for students who have been admitted to the SKSM-ChI joint program and is not available to other SKSM students or to students from other GTU schools.
This course does not count toward residency requirements.
Dates for this course are tentatively Jan 16-20, 2019, 9am – 5pm (typically includes 1 evening class).
Relates to SKSM thresholds 1, 8, 6, 7, 2; MFC Competencies 1, 2 and 4.
