For many colleges, summers are a time for the administration and faculty to wind down, regroup, and gear up for the fall semester. At Christendom, though, it’s business as usual.
This summer, Christendom will play host to a variety of educational programs: the Summer Music Colloquium, the very popular Summer Institute, the High School Summer College, and the Notre Dame Graduate School Summer Session.
Christendom’s 2002 High School Summer College is scheduled for July 7-19. Organized by Christendom’s Admissions Office, this year’s High School Summer College is sure to be another glowing success. Current High School Juniors and Seniors who participate in this program will be treated to courses on Theology, Philosophy, Political Science, and Literature, all taught by Christendom’s own faculty. “Campers” will go on outdoor excursions to the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley, and visit Washington, DC, to see such sites as the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the US Capitol, and the National Gallery of Art. In addition, participants will enjoy volleyball, basketball, and pool-side relaxation.
The 12th Annual Summer Liturgical Music Colloquium will be held from Tuesday, June 18 until Sunday, June 23, 2002, under the cosponsorship of the Church Music Association of America. An able and experienced staff of instructors will lead session in Gregorian Chant and sacred polyphony, both English and Latin, for organists, singers, choir conductors, and parish priest.
This year’s Summer Institute, to be held July 5-7, will feature Dr. Scott Hahn, Jeff Cavins, Dr. Timothy O’Donnell, Tim Gray, Curtis Martin, Bishop Robert Morlino and other Christendom College faculty. The theme of this year’s Institute will be “Builiding the Civilization of Love.”
And ending out the summer is the NDGS Summer Session. For six-weeks (6/25-8/2), the graduate students will enjoy the peaceful serenity of Christendom’s campus while taking classes in The Fundamentals of Moral Theology, The Liturgy and the Sacraments, The Mystical Life, The Johannine Gospel, Philosophical Errors, and The Catholic Epistles and Book of Revelation.
