My Personal Moral Compass Course 2021
By Rev. Fr David Garcia, OP
The My Personal Moral Compass Course (MPMC) is for all Catholics and all people of goodwill interested in formation in the foundations of Ethics and Moral Theology. The objective of this course is for participants to understand and to articulate the fundamentals of moral thinking with greater clarity.
It is a one-year-long systematic course in Moral Theology consisting of 6 individual modules. The modules are:
Module 1. Who decides what is right or wrong?
Module 2. Becoming Persons
Module 3. Christian Morality
Module 4. Ethics of Love, Sex and Marriage
Module 5. Christians in the Social Community
Module 6. Stewards of Life
There is no prerequisite for application to the modules. All participants are welcome. Where places are limited, priority will be given to those who are actively forming others; to this end, endorsement from the relevant parish priest or leader in the parish or diocesan community / ministry / organisation will count toward this consideration. Access the course guide here.
Upcoming: Module 6 – Stewards of Life
As medical technologies continue to develop rapidly and laws on them are debated, pertinent ethical questions about them need to be asked. When is the right time to turn off the plug and let a family member die in peace? Is mercy killing ever an option? Is abortion always wrong in all circumstances? Is plastic surgery ethical? Is IVF permissible? Can we redesign babies?
Fr David Garcia will explore all these questions, and more, in the sixth module of My Personal Moral Compass: Stewards of Life. Come and join us!
7 Oct to 25 Nov (Thursdays), 7.30pm
Sessions are conducted via Zoom Live.
