Marianist Studies: William J. Ferree, SM: Social Justice

Course Level: Basic

Course Summary

What actions are we called to do when practicing the virtues of Social Justice and Social Charity? That is the question Father William J. Ferree, SM, discussed in his 1942 thesis "The Act of Social Justice" and in his 1948 pamphlet "An Introduction to Social Justice". In this course we will revisit Father Ferree’s writings to better understand the impact of his thinking and how it challenges us to rethink how we go about Social Justice. Throughout the course we will work together to investigate how his work is relevant to us in today’s world.
