People's Catholic Seminary Offers New Course on Baptism and Confirmation


Welcome to PCS 601. The purpose of this course is to reflect on Baptism and Confirmation as sacraments of welcome to the Christian community and commitment to Gospel living. This course integrates theological reflection, spirituality and ministerial experience. Our two main 
resources are from Ilia Delio and Greg Boyle. Ilia Delio, in a YouTube lecture, presents her reflection on what it means to live the Gospel in an age that is global, plural and scientific. Greg Boyle presents what his baptismal call and confirmation commitment look like in his work with gang members from LA.

The course is divided into 6 sessions over 12 weeks. Each session is two weeks in length. During the first week, listen to or read the resources. In the second week write a reflection based on the questions in each assignment. We encourage you to read and respond to each other's inspired words. 

Please begin each reflection with Session number: Your name.

If you have any questions, please send them to Mary Theresa at

Many blessings as you begin this journey together.
Bridget Mary and Mary Theresa
