Missing up to three sessions is permissible, and individual circumstances may make this necessary. Unfortunately, individual participants cannot make up missed sessions privately (though they are encouraged to discuss the material with those who did attend the session). One of the primary goals of the program is to foster community. Just as students at the University of Dallas study the same core curriculum and have discussions on history, theology, or literature outside the classroom–while walking across campus, over lunch in the cafeteria, and over a beer on Friday night–we hope the participants in this program will have similar experiences of the power of ideas and dialogue to create bonds of communion and friendship.
What if I miss a session?
