Living a moral life is a key component of living a Christian life. This course will describe the Catholic approach to morality and social justice within the context of the student’s building of a committed relationship with Jesus Christ and a deeper response to God’s call to become a holy people. After considering issues dealing with personal moral decision-making, this course will focus on the Church’s teaching that working for justice is an integral part of living the Gospel message and cooperating in building the Kingdom of God. Students will be challenged to live a justice-centered lifestyle that promotes the common good. This course will also rely on the wealth of Biblical and ecclesial teachings, which identify the Church as a driving force in social reform. Each student will be encouraged to incorporate the principles of both social justice and morality into their daily lives as is consonant with Salesian spirituality. In this manner, all students will be exhorted to become morally and socially responsible persons living Jesus according to the Roman Catholic tradition.
Prerequisites: This course is open to students in College Prep, Accelerated, and Honors Religious Studies courses who have completed Sacred Scripture and obtained teacher approval. Due to the intensive nature of the summer session, the course will receive AC credit.
