Through all of the above and more, the TOB Institute desires to reach men and women in every state of life with a hopeful, liberating vision of human identity that appeals to the deepest yearnings of the heart for love and union.

Our Mission
The mission of Theology of the Body Institute is to form men and women to understand, live and promote the Theology of the Body.

Our Vision
Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body has been called his “masterwork” and a “theological time bomb.” Drawing from the depths of Scripture and Catholic Tradition, it illuminates the human desire for love and fulfillment as revealed in our creation as male and female.  By charting a path to an authentic sexual redemption, the Theology of the Body serves as the antidote to the culture of death and the foundation of the culture of life. The Theology of the Body Institute envisions a world filled with men and women who freely embrace their dignity created in the image and likeness of God. Only from this foundation can an authentic culture of life and a civilization of love take root and flourish.
