About the Course

CATH 175 is a one-credit introduction to Catholic Studies. The course explores the features of Catholicism in an interdisciplinary and integrative manner. It is for students considering a major or minor in Catholic Studies; however, it may be of interest to anyone wishing to learn more about Catholicism.

Seven Sessions, One Credit (Mondays 5:15-6:30 pm)

Fall 2023 theme: “Mary in Scripture and Tradition.” Our aim is to contemplate together the mystery of Mary from within the Church’s heritage and to study some significant features of her place in Scripture and Tradition.

“What the Catholic faith believes about Mary is based on what it believes about Christ, and what it teaches about Mary illumines in turn its faith in Christ.” (CCC 487)

Engage speakers and peers in discussion. Ask your questions to Bishop Vetter (Bishop of the Diocese of Helena). Get to know the Catholic Studies community over dinners and discussions.
