The University of Dallas (UD) is offering our parish an exciting new Adult Faith Formation program, which was developed in cooperation with some of the leading professors at the UD. St. Anne has been chosen as a pilot parish for this program and we are inviting all adults in the parish to participate. This program begins with “Course I, The Person: Life and Community.” This is an Introduction to Philosophical and Theological Anthropology and Catholic Social Teaching.
Here’s a description of the course found on their Faith and Culture website:
Among the most distinctive and essential of the Church’s doctrines are those concerning the dignity and vocation of the human person. Made for life with God and with one another, for communion and friendship, we bring the Gospel to bear on every aspect of human life: marriage, family, society, government, and the economy. By doing so, we humanize the whole culture, allowing our lives and our work to reflect the transcendent realities such as love, goodness and beauty.
Sessions begin Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at 6:45 p.m. at the parish and will run through November 14, 2018. University of Dallas is one of the pre-eminent Catholic universities in the country. Due to the caliber of the program, the cost is $150 per person. This is a fraction of the cost of college credits — and the content is on par with the caliber of college content. Individuals and businesses are invited to make donations, which will be used for scholarships for individuals who wish to attend but cannot afford it. All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of each course.
