Theology of the Body was St. John Paul II's first major teaching project as Pope, and presents a complete vision for humanity - a people fully alive.  Theology of the Body proposes that the body makes visible an invisible reality, and through it men and women find joy, hope, freedom, and fulfillment.  Sr. Helena Burns will present a special workshop for Confirmandi and their parents on Saturday, October 22, 10 am-3 pm and Sunday, October 23, 1-4 pm.  Confirmandi and parents should register here for the sessions.  Parishioners are welcome to attend, but space will be limited.  Click here to view the informational flyer and to see a list of topics to be covered by Sr. Helena.  Please contact Tina Burtch with questions.

Gaitley's teachings on Marian consecration from four spiritual masters:  St. Teresa of Calcutta, St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. John Paul II, and St. Louis de Montfort.  Please visit the Marian consecration page to learn more and to participate.
