Catholic Schools as Faith Community: Can Institutions Believe?

SMP3427HS  L0101 · Cancelled on 2012/01/09
Offered in Winter 2012  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2009 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

In this course you will examine from a theological and religious educational perspective how the Catholic school is understood and expected to be a faith community. The course will also build on sociology and political history to help you situate your discourse about schools and community. Your research and discussion will focus on ways in which Catholic schools can more closely appropriate aspects of a Catholic faith community, in the vision of Vatican II, and where they must acknowledge and respect their limitations in doing this. Models for building faith communities within a Catholic school will be developed by students.
