On Nov. 13, LANE (Lakeshore Academy for the New Evangelization) will host a class called "Life, Love, and the Gift of Marriage and Family".

It will give a brief outline of some of the Church's most important teachings about marriage and the family, including Theology of the Body and Pope St. Paul VI's encyclical "Humanae Vitae".

The class will be led by Sr. Colleen Ann Nagle, a Franciscan Sister of the Eucharist and director of the Franciscan Life Process Center. It starts at 5:30 p.m. with a light meal, and it takes place at Our Lady of the Lake parish, 480 152nd Avenue, Holland, MI 49424. More information and registration can be found at

Additionally, Theology of the Body is being studied by Catholic school educators across the Diocese of Grand Rapids. This fall, they began a year-round program of examining this teaching. This faith formation is further preparing faculty for teaching about what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God.
