Participants will study “Dominus Iesus,” from the Congregation of the Doctrine for the faith, and its correspondence with John Paul II´s most recent apostolic letter, “Novo Millennio Ineunte.” The course aims to give insight to the Holy Father´s desire for Christian unity and commitment to interfaith dialogue.
The course is offered in cooperation with jonesknowledge.com. Cost for the five-week course is $55. Registration begins April 20 through an online link with Jones.
The instructor will be Bill Beckman (firstname.lastname@example.org), adviser to Archbishop Charles Chaput and ecumenical and interfaith officer for the archdiocese. Students will earn 12 hours credit (6 Christology and 6 ecclesiology) from the archdiocesan Catechetical School.
The previous courses, “Understanding and Celebrating the Jubilee” and “The History and Documents of Vatican II,” included students from across the United States and Australia. Beckman expects the new course to attract participants from Europe and Latin America as well.
