This course seeks to understand the life of St. Eugene de Mazenod (1782- 1861) and the significance of his charism for the Church and for all involved in the mission and spirituality inspired by him.
Charisms, Founders, and their Expression in Constitutions and Rules
This course explores the foundation event and how the people involved in it discerned a charism of the Holy Spirit, which was expressed in a Rule of Life.
Oblation Expressed in Missionary Discipleship
This course explores the Biblical and theological foundation of “oblation” and its expression in missionary discipleship through the study of various figures in the history of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate.
These courses form part of the Oblate Studies curriculum, consequently the experience of St. Eugene de Mazenod and his charism and tradition will be used to illustrate the class-but always with the invitation to all participants to apply all the material to their needs and situations and institutes.
Each course is offered asynchronously online,
weekly over one semester [August-December 2020]
or every two weeks over two semesters [August 2020-May 2021].
The courses are offered for enrichment or accreditation purposes.
