Full course description

THEO-N006-The Celebration of the Christian Mystery (3 CEU's)

Christ instituted, for our justification, the seven Sacraments, which were foreshadowed in the Old Testament. This course (formerly 306-0802) based on Pillar Two of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, provides an overview of the Sacraments in light of their three categories: Sacraments of Initiation, Sacraments of Healing, and the Sacraments at the Service of Communion. Students who complete this course should be able to explain in detail the content of each Sacrament within the context of liturgy and Scripture, and to describe the emphasis that catechesis should place on teaching the communal dimension of the Sacraments.
