Professional Course Subjects


MR600 - VINCENTIAN HERITAGE Credits: 3

Course Title: VINCENTIAN HERITAGE
Course Code MR600
Credit Units 3 Unit/s
Prerequisite
Course Description This course deals with the life, spirituality, mission and the legacy of St. Vincent de Paul, Patron Saint of Adamson University, and the “family” of collaborators and groups that were either founded by him or draw their inspiration from him: groups who, out of a sense of shared humanity, compassion and love for God, are working for and with suffering human beings who are mostly poor, abandoned, marginalized, oppressed, and powerless. Students find out who St. Vincent de Paul was, what his legacy was, why he is still relevant today, and what they can learn from his heritage that will create an impact in the world especially among the socially disadvantaged sectors.
