The world we live in: Ethical visions of today
There are so many different opinions about how to live and what the good life is. In this class we will look into the main currents of ethics we encounter today, from moral relativism to legalist moralism, from stoicism to virtue ethics and evolutionary psychology. We will learn to analyse their influence on us and their value and worth in our lives.
Teacher: Fr. John Mary Jesus
The Gospel of Mark
This part of the course will be a detailed analysis of Mark’s Gospel. Participants will learn the keys to reading Biblical texts and seeing the different layers of meaning. We will learn about different ways of writing and communicating that God uses to convey Revelation.
Teacher: Mgr. Jan Liesen
Catholic Doctrines Explained: Last Things
This module will investigate what Catholic Doctrine is, and focus specifically on the Catholic theology of the Last Things: what exactly are purgatory, eternal life, hell, and why is the Church described as living in the “final times” of the world?
Teacher: Fr. Ignatius
There is no pre-class preparation required, but a reading list will be provided for each module so that further reading will be possible for those who wish.
Regular attendance is required, due to the goals of the course which aim at sure and steady continued progress. A maximum of 4 absences in the whole year, or 2 for those following 2 module, is allowed for. More than this and it will no longer make sense for the participant to attend. Should you wish to register as "auditor" (sporadic attendance) please contant us - there will be a limited number of auditor spaces.
The CFC works as a whole and so we discourage people from registering for just 1 or 2 modules, but to attend the course on a weekly basis, following all 3 modules. If this is not possible for you then please let us know.
In order to promote the participation and exchange among students and young adults participation is limited to the under-45's. The modules will also be given in English in order to make the course available to a wider audience. For all questions and discussion Dutch will also be perfectly acceptable!
