Boston College STM Online: Encore Podcast

For nearly ten years, our continuing education staff at the Boston College School of Theology and Ministry have been recording and archiving the lectures in theology and ministry that we host on campus. We call this collection “STM Online: Encore.” You can find a range of topics including Catholic social teaching, scripture, ministry, and spirituality.

Presenter: Thomas H. Groome

The Church often repeats that the family is the primary religious educator.  Parents can well hear this as a daunting task and the Church does precious little to support them in their evangelizing and catechizing responsibilities—to sow and grow the seeds of faith.  This inaugural annual STM Religious Education presentation will reflect on why the home is so central and will make practical suggestions for how the family can be "the first educator in the ways of faith" (Rite of Baptism).

Professor Groome claims that the faith to share in the home should be centered on the person of Jesus Christ and involve “witness, worship, word, and welfare”
