Salesian Identity & Charism

Instructor: Joseph Boenzi, SDB

As a prelude for understanding the pastoral contribution of St John Bosco (1815-1888) and  the various branches of the Salesian Family, students unpack the Christian concept of charism especially with reference to vocation and mission. The course begins with a survey of biblical concepts and follows the development of the theology of charism. The emphasis then shifts to consecrated life. Methods for identifying and rediscovering (re-founding) the charism of the founder will be explored. [3.0 units].
