Semester 2 unit: Sent to Serve

Lecturer:
Dr Matthew Beckmann OFM

This unit invites students to develop a theology of vocation and ministry patterned on Christ, the Good Shepherd, who ‘came to serve and not be served’.  Priest or lay, woman or man, young or old, what are the hallmarks of a healthy call to be a minister of Christ?  This unit gives particular attention to the vision of Church of Vatican II, the insights gained from the experience of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, Pastores Dabo Vobis and students’ own experiences of vocation and ministry.
