INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS ON A CATHOLIC CAMPUS
CATHOLIC EVANGELIZATION IN OUR TIME Part VI: How are International Students received on a Marian Catholic Campus? How should they be received? Francesca Franchina, MS Ed. talks with Sr. Celia Chua, MIC, STL; STD, (Missionary Sister of The Immaculate Conception who holds a Licentiate and Doctorate in Sacred Theology) a member of the faculty at the Pontifical International Marian Research Institute (IMRI) at the University of Dayton Marian Library, about helping and ministering to and with International Students on a Marian Catholic Campus. Sr. Celia travels extensively and teaches in Canada and China where she also ministers as a nurse. Sr. Celia addresses faculty members as well as Chinese students providing a familiar face and native language to students from China and other Asian countries. Call in. What would you like to ask Sister Celia about international students, students of different faiths who attend Catholic schools, not only on the university level but as students in elementary and secondary school? What does our Catholic Faith call forth in being a friend and a Christian? How do we talk with people at any age who are different, have different belief systems and ideologies? Are we threatened or encouraged to know people outside our milieu? What witness do we present as Christians and Catholics about Jesus, Mary and our beliefs? Do we offer a challenge or an invitation? What would Jesus and Mary do? Does Mary have any part in talking with international students and students who are not Catholic, or who have no religious or faith dimension or are of the New Age? What does Marian Spirituality have to offer an International Student.
