Introduction to the Learner- Mother of Perpetual Help (Garland)

Saturday, September 27, 2014 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM



Course #101. The Introduction to the Learner introduces the catechists to the process of growth and development of their learners, giving them a better understanding of the methodology used in modern catechetical materials.  The catechist will have the opportunity to explore this growth and development in three areas: how we build knowledge and construct meaning, how we grow psychologically and in our ability to relate to others, how we grow in our ability to think and act morally, and how all these areas of development affect how we perceive our faith. 

Objectives.  At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the nature of learning
  • Understand the relationship of religion and science
  • Identify the psycho-social development of the human person
  • Understand moral decision making and the role of imagination in moral decision making
  • Understand the relationship between moral decisions and moral actions
  • Understand the relationship of human knowing, relating, and acting to religious faith
  • Identify the stages of faith development
  • Identify the journey of faith through the seasons of childhood, discipleship, and stewardship


This is an intermediate level I course of 5 hours. See the Continuing Faith Formation chart.
