TERM 1

Created in the Image of God:
An Introduction to Christian Anthropology

This set of talks will offer a Catholic perspective on what it means to be human. Utilising Scripture and St Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, it will delve into what it means to be made in the image and likeness of the Holy Trinity, how this forms the basis of our identity and human dignity, and how Jesus’ death on the Cross gives the highest and deepest revelation of what it means to be human. Participants will learn the meaning of being redeemed and healed in Christ, the importance of being made male and female, the vocation of every human person, and will be challenged to apply such principles as being “in the world, not of the world”. This course belongs to a 4-part series on Scripture, Prayer and Sacraments, Christian Anthropology and Catholic Values.

 

TERM 2

Strengthening One’s
Relationship with God: Prayer and Sacraments

The Catechism of the Catholic Church emphasises the importance of Prayer and The Sacraments in the life of a Christian. It refers to prayer as the means through which we celebrate our faith in God and enter into a personal relationship with Him (2558). As we do this, the Sacraments mark all the important stages of our Christian life and sustain us in our sense of mission as Christians (1210). Join us as we explore what prayer is, the difference between saying prayers and praying, and how the seven Sacraments can deepen and give meaning to our unique relationship with God. This course belongs to a 4-part series on Scripture, Prayer and Sacraments, Christian Anthropology and Catholic Values. CEWA Ongoing Renewal: this course has been approved for Knowledge
