RES 345 - Global Catholicism: Pursuing Justice, Seeking Holiness, Building Community

To be Catholic is to embrace the call of Christian discipleship, to live one’s faith as a way of love that offers reconciliation and hope through prayer and ritual, compassionate service, and action for justice. Catholic identity is experienced through many languages, customs, and foods as well as rich spiritual practices of pilgrimage, community, and sacramental celebration. At the same time, the institutional church faces many challenges - sexism, clericalism, racism, and heterosexism - as well as a history of colonialism, imperialism, and religious intolerance. We will study the history of the church, what it means to be Catholic today, and the creation of a future church of transformative encounter, prophetic faith, and joy. Course Codes: BR. Prereq: PEQ in Religious Studies. Women’s Studies Minor course.
