Renewal of Christian Faith
Pre-requisite: None

The course Renewal of Christian Faith, is the only possible way to approach Christian faith through a total, lifelong and deepening conversion. It is total in the sense that it must touch the whole person, both his intellect and will, to be able to make a creative response to God’s calling.

A process of search and growth, through encounters with source of faith, the subject of faith and a model of faith must all take place in the context of the faith community.
No book can bring about the realization for us. Words and someone else’s faith experience cannot substitute for one’s own. Even scripture can serve only as an opening to the Divine Mystery, not a replacement for personal belief.
This syllabus can offer a foundation, a focus and an attitude toward a correct and clear understanding of faith as presented by the Catholic Church.
