Moral and Social Teachings

St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry is a Roman Catholic graduate and professional school of theology that educates and assists women and men in academic, ministerial, interpersonal, and spiritual formation for the purpose of serving the Church through diverse forms of lay and ordained ministries, theological scholarship, and Christian service in society.

St. Bernard's offers three masters degrees in theology and continuing education opportunities for those seeking professional training, personal enrichment or a deeper understanding of their faith. St. Bernard's classes are held primarily in the evenings in order to accommodate the needs of part-time adult students.

St. Bernard's extension site in Albany is located at 40 North Main Avenue. One of the course offerings for the summer semester, which begins in May, is Moral and Social Teachings:
Introduction to the fields of moral theology and Catholic Social Thought: their purpose in the life of the Church; their methods, their problems. The content of the course is a thorough treatment of methodological issues rather than analysis of specific moral or social dilemmas, though specific issues and cases are used for purposes of illustration and assisting students in developing skills of application to practical situations. Among the topics to be addressed: sin and conversion, moral growth and development, sources of moral wisdom, methods of moral decision making, conscience and discernment, and the development of Catholic Social Thought.

Thursdays, 6-10 p.m.
May 3 - June 28, 2012
