On-line course

Dr. Marv Mich, author of Catholic Social Teaching and Movements, will lead an online course on the history of Catholic social action August 27-September 30 at the University of Dayton Virtual Learning Community. You can take the course for $80.
The Catholic Social Tradition is often identified with the official social documents of the church. As valuable as these teachings are they only tell part of the story of Catholic social ministry. These official teachings have been influenced and shaped by the activism of Catholics around the world, the documents, in turn, have motivated and encouraged various forms of Catholic Social Action and Ministry. This course exposes the participants to some of the highlights of this rich tradition of Catholic Social Action.
