New C21 On-line Courses This Fall Focus on Parental Responsibilities, Women's Role in the Church

The responsibilities of parents passing on their faith to their children and the role of women in the Catholic Church are the subjects of two new non-credit on-line courses offered by the Church in the 21st Century Center starting next week.

"C21 Online" provides courses for spiritual enrichment and faith renewal that are schedule-friendly and as close as the nearest computer. Courses - all free of charge for BC employees - features readings, videos, and discussion forums for faith sharing guided by experienced religious educators

The two new courses begin Sept. 25 and last for four weeks.

Institute for Religious Education and Pastoral Ministry Director Prof. Thomas Groome (Theology) is featured in the course "Parents Handing on the Faith," which is aimed at parents and grandparents of school-age children.

Women and men interested in exploring women's roles in the Church can register for "Women Envisioning Church," which includes video excerpts from the recent Boston College conference "Envisioning the Church Women Want."

Two other C21 online courses, "Synoptic Gospels" and "What Makes Us Catholic," will begin Oct. 30.
