Throughout this school year, Catholic school teachers in the Diocese of Grand Rapids have been studying Theology of the Body, St. John Paul II’s teaching about God’s vision of the human person and human sexuality. This faith formation is further preparing faculty for teaching about what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God.
Because of this focus, the Office of Catholic Schools is sharing information about a free virtual conference being held by Theology of the Body Institute, May 8-10. It features more than 50 speakers, artists and clergy, including Christopher West, Sr. Helena Burns, and Fr. Timothy Gallagher.
During the conference, participants will be able to watch the pre-recorded presentations on demand. Organizers are also offering a premium pass for accessing the presentations after the conference ends. Find conference details at tobvirtualconference.com.
