Institute of Theology: Foundations of the Faith

November 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, repeating until November 23, 2019

Are you interested in growing in your faith? Saint Andrew’s will launch a Catholic lay theology program beginning in Fall 2019. This program is designed for those seeking to deepen their knowledge of the faith through the study of theology, God’s revelation in Scripture, and the Church magisterium. The aim is for participants to grow both intellectually and spiritually.

This program will provide a foundation of the faith at an adult level. Scripture, reason, and the teachings of the Church will all be used to build this foundation. You will grow in confidence, knowing your own faith and in being able to share the faith with others.

All classes are held at Saint Andrew Apostle Catholic Church in Silver Spring, Maryland, with theology professors from local Universities and Institutes. Each Seminar consists of four sessions that occur in the Fall, Winter, or Spring. Each 90-minute session includes an hour of lecture followed by discussion.

Fall 2019 Seminar: Creation and the Old Testament
Instructor: Dr. Joseph Atkinson, Associate Professor of Sacred Scripture, Pontifical John Paul II Institute, Washington, D.C.

Course Description: The recovery of an authentic theology of creation is the first essential key to the renewal of the Church and of society. Many of the problems we face today stem from a false understanding of the human person as an autonomous, self-determining individual. This Seminar will focus on the recovery of the Biblical vision of creation and the human person. It will examine the basic principles of creation and show how they affect the human person, our relationships with each other, and with God. These four sessions will help you discover what being in the image of God means for human relationships, especially marriage and family, and how the holiness of God is central to becoming human. You will also come to understand the theological meaning of primordial sin and its inevitable consequences.

Dates: Saturdays, November 2, 9, 16, and 23, 2019

Time: 10am – 11:30am
