UST's Faith & Science Course Offered Worldwide through IDC

Faith and Science bookcoverDeacon Robert Hesse, adjunct professor at UST’s Nesti Center for Faith & Culture, recently shared his Faith and Science course with the International Diaconate Centre (IDC) through its president Deacon Gerald DuPont, former director of Diaconate Formation at St. Mary's Seminary in Houston.

Deacon DuPont will distribute the course to deacon representatives in 52 countries asking them to forward it to their respective dioceses at the IDC meeting on Thursday, Oct. 27. The IDC is a movement for the renewal of the Permanent Diaconate aimed at men and women in the Catholic Church.

The Faith and Science course utilizes Deacon Hesse’s academically acclaimed textbook titled “Faith and Science:  A Journey into God’s Mystical Love.”  Deacon Hesse is also an instructor at the Pontifical University in Rome.

Deacon Hesse recommends his course for both clergy and lay ministers, and offers a reduced cost for auditing the University of St. Thomas course of only $150.

“The course,” wrote Deacon Hesse, “is presented in language non-scientists and non-theologians can understand, with many practical ministerial applications.”
