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.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
Recognize that the call to ministry comes from God
Demonstrate that ministry demands a vibrant, growing relationship with God and others,
and it is out of such relationship that genuine ministry flows
Follow Jesus’ model of ministry
Recognize the role of the Holy Spirit in inspiring ministry
Recognize the importance of prayer in the minister’s life
Understand the apostolic activity of those who minister in Christ’s name
