Comments from Students:
This was an excellent course. I appreciated the thorough, multi-media, multi-perspective approach that focused on lived experience.
This is one of the best things I've ever done. The course provided me with the information that I desired—and more—and did it using a variety of resources, allowing me to encounter and integrate the material in various ways. I really appreciated Fr. Creed's unique balance of no-nonsense and compassion, his encouragement and his challenge. I will be pondering the content of the course and using the materials from it for years to come.
