  • Examine the role that prayer, study of Scripture, and the teachings of the Church have played in the Christian story
  • Learn from the insights and wisdom, as well as the mistakes and missteps, of those who have striven to live the Gospel message throughout the history of Christianity
  • Understand why some knowledge of the depths and riches of the past help nourish the ministry of the Church today
