THEOLOGY OF THE BODY 

Discover God’s plan for love and life.  Join us for a six week course on Theology of the Body, every Wednesday starting October 1st from 7-8:15pm in the Parish Office.  The 'Theology of the Body' is Saint Pope John Paul II's integrated vision of the human person - body, soul, and spirit. As he explains, the physical human body has a specific meaning and is capable of revealing answers regarding fundamental questions about us and our lives.  Below is a detailed description regarding the topic of conversation each week.

Week 1: Created for Love

Week 2: Love Defined: Giving versus Using

Week 3: Hope and Redemption in Christ

Week 4: Language of the Body

Week 5: Free, Total, Faithful, Fruitful

Week 6: Dating with Purpose and Purity
