In this course, participants will discover how theology of the body can lead you to a deeper encounter with Christ and the Trinitarian God. They will learn a new way of looking at God's original plan as connected with the sacramentality of the body and the gift of self. Participants will experience a new way of looking at the effects of sin and one's ultimate perfection in heaven and they will deepen their understanding of Catholic Church teaching on marriage and the centrality of the one-flesh union for understanding all of reality. They will also gain a new confidence in defending the moral teachings of the Catholic Church. Whether you're single or married, involved in ministry or just wanting to learn more about the Catholic faith, this workshop is for all who are interested.
