Chaminade University Summer Institute: Sharing the Faith, Jun 12-13

On June 12-13, 2020, catechists and religion teachers in Catholic parishes and schools are invited to “Sharing the Faith,” a special two-day series of seminars offered through Chaminade’s Summer Institute. The workshop, led by members of Chaminade’s Religious Studies and Education faculty, will focus on the important work of passing faith onto students and helping them to become ethical and empathetic members of society.

Participants will learn the best practices in teaching religion – and then how to deploy them in their classrooms. There will also be lots of opportunities to connect with other workshop participants during shared meals, discussions, and hands-on activities.

Upon completing this course, you will be eligible to receive the Lay Ecclesial Ministry certificate issued by the diocesan Office of Religious Education for Theological Foundation Courses.
