COURSE OVERVIEW

This course both invites and challenges the adolescent to personalize the principles that guide Catholics in understanding their role in shaping culture through our discipleship.  The exploration of these principles starts with the Scriptural foundations to the questions of what it means to be human and how God has and continues to shape our humanity through culture.  The principles are then developed through the gospel themes that reveal how Jesus' Kingdom of God is expressed in all of our relationships: to ourselves, to others, to our civil society, to our Church, and to our Global community.
Students are expected to follow class rules and routines:

  • Regular attendance, full effort and committed participation are necessary for success in this course
