To all those interested: a new class worth 3 credits called “Origins of the Catholic Faith” is now being offered through Duquesne University for the spring semester. The class is being taught by Dr. Damon McGraw, PhD. and is on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:00 from January 5- April 22. It will be held in the conference room in the Newman Center.
The goal of the course will be to introduce students to a scholarly consideration of the Christian Faith. The course will discuss the historical developments and impact of the Faith, while discovering by reason and revelation how we come to know the true power and will of God. Attention will also be given to the Christian understanding of the human person, his nature and destiny.
This course is offered through Duquesne University so the proper cross-registration paperwork will need to be filled out; talk to your academic adviser if you’re interested. The primary text for this course will be the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the documents of the Second Vatican Council. Contact Fr. Mike (412)681-3181 or Prof. Damon McGraw (412)681-4375, with any questions. Pamphlets on the class are available at the Newman Center or below as a downloadable PDF and contain further information about it.
