The course objective is for participants to understand and articulate the fundamentals of moral thinking with greater clarity.
The course is conducted by Fr David Garcia, O.P., who lectures at the Major Seminary and Catholic Theological Institute of Singapore in Moral Theology. He is a well-known speaker who has addressed a spectrum of issues affecting society ranging from family life, social justice, and bioethics.

My Personal Compass is a year-long modular course on ethical issues. There are a total of five modules, each lasting six or seven weeks. There are no assignments or coursework to be submitted.

Module 5. Stewards of Life
Upcoming: Module 3 – Virtues and Becoming Better Persons
In today’s marketplace of ideas, there are many different moralities, and we are often asked to keep what we believe to ourselves. But is Christian morality meant to be kept private within Christian communities? What is Christian morality anyway?
Join us as we explore why Christian morality may be the answer to the wounded human nature and the role of God’s grace. We will also consider why the Church has always put so much emphasis on faith, hope and love.
