301 Ecclesiology

This course develops a theological study about the Church. As believers, we must take a closer look at its liturgical life and its historical development and how the Church sees herself through the centuries as the manifestation of the Holy Spirit. This work of the Holy Spirit is expressed not only in the history or the marks of the Church, but also in the communion and mission that has been entrusted to the community of believers lead by the Church’s hierarchy. This course will lead the students to extend their vision with respect to the nature and ministry of the Church.
