Moerzeke, Belgium – On Wednesday 29 June 2022, seven students who completed the course on ‘Social Teaching of the Church’ defended their final dissertation.
Under the presidency of Brother René Stockman, president of the International Institute Canon Triest, and in the presence of Prof. Gaetan de Simone, representative of the Pontifical University Lateran in Rome, and the respective supervisors, four Brothers of Charity, one Brother of Saint Joseph from Burundi, and two Abizeramariya Sisters successfully completed their studies.
In the presence of the teachers and the staff of the Institute, the other students, and the friends of the Brothers, the provisional certificates were awarded in the evening during the graduation ceremony in Moerzeke. Several speakers emphasized the importance of applying the social teaching of the Church to our daily lives and thus helping other fellow believers to take a stand with clear arguments on the many problem areas that are found in today’s society.
In September, a new two-year course will start, leading to a ‘Master of Social Teaching of the Church’.
