  • Encourage boundless trust in God, His Divine Providence, His Love, & His Mercy
  • Impart a firm understanding of Christian moral principles & the proper application of Christian moral principles in life situations
  • Impart a greater understanding of the dignity of the human person, freewill, & vocation
  • Foster a deeper admiration of the particular callings within the Church
  • Inspire each student to respond with greater zeal to the Universal Call to Holiness

Students taking this course for Kolbe Honors (OH) credit will have 4 papers per semester as chosen by their main instructor.  Daily reading, minor weekly written assignments, required participation, and exams will also be assigned and graded by the instructor.

Honors students will attend a live Honors Seminar that meets periodically throughout the year.  Honors seminar will require projects and additional reading in the form of essays, articles, and encyclicals with the purpose of going into more depth on the topics being studied in class.  Students will be graded on active participation during live seminar.  The type of participation required will vary but includes activities such as active discussion, collaborative group work, and presentations.  The participation grade from honors seminar will be weighted 20% into the student’s overall grade for the honors course.
