The Catholic Church in Canada | Dominican University College

The Catholic Church in Canada

From the arrival of the first priests in Newfoundland in 1498 to the organization of the International Eucharistic Congress of Quebec City in 2008, the Catholic Church has formed an integral part of the Canadian landscape. Using a chronological framework, this course presents the major time periods in the history of the Catholic Church in Canada, from the second millennium to the present day. In this course, students will associate key events of the various periods and explain the historical relationship between the Church and the broader Canadian culture and socio-political context. Students are guided in the exploration of their family history to define their own place in the living history of the Canadian Church. The pedagogical approach in this course is experiential and participatory. Students must be prepared to present on their family histories and are expected to broaden their reflection through the exploration of a particular topic or an important spiritual text. The assessment plan in this course includes written and oral assignments.
