Course Description:

This course introduces students to the key themes of the 129 Wednesday audience addresses that comprise John Paul II’s Theology of the Body. Particular attention will be paid to the imago Dei, fall and redemption, Christian ethics and ethos, freedom and person, gender and vocation. Students will be encouraged to journey from “head to heart” in applying the theological concepts they learn to their own lives and relationships.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID restrictions, we are not allowed to accept registrations from out-of-country participants. We will keep the size of this course to 30 participants, as well as maintaining social distancing, adhering to mask wearing protocols, and giving participants a single room at no charge (spouses, roommates, and family members will be housed together in double occupancy rooms). For the protection of our staff and participants, we ask that if you have been exposed to or have had COVID19 you do not attend the course at this time. If you are not able to attend, due to COVID19 requirements, we would offer you a full refund.
