The Constitution on the Church, Lumen Gentium, deals with the way the Church works (People of God, hierarchy, laity, religious, and so on). Students who complete this course should be able to better understand one’s role in the Church by reason of one’s Baptism. Students who complete this course should be able to explain the theology of this major document of the Second Vatican Council in a coherent manner. 10 Clock Hours: l Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
