COURSE DESCRIPTION 
Introducing Catholic doctrine and morality about sexuality to the catechumens is never limited to teaching about avoiding sin – it deals with growth in the Christian virtues and developing the capacity for self-giving in the vocation of one’s own life (The Trust and Meaning of Human Sexuality #123). The importance of virtues need to be emphasized especially in remote and proximate marriage preparation first by helping the catechumens form their character before proximate marriage preparation first by helping the catechumens form their character before providing them with a healthy understanding of relationships, sexuality, the virtue of chastity and responsible parenthood (Amoris Laetitia #206 and Marriage and Love and Life in the Divine Plan, USCCB). In this course, participants will be given a deeper understanding of the cardinal virtues which can be acquired by education and the thelogical virtues which are the foundation of Christian moral activity.
