With the current push for gender theory to be legally implemented around the world and in so many areas of public life, it’s more – rather than less – important for Catholics to be well-formed in the Church’s teaching on human sexuality.
It’s timely, then, that a four-day immersion course on the Theology of the Body will be offered from 15 to 18 July in the picturesque surrounds of the Mt Schoenstatt Spirituality Centre in Mulgoa.
The Human Person: Male and Female He created them is a beginner’s course for adults led by international Theology of the Body expert, Katrina Zeno.
An author and well-known speaker in Catholic circles, Ms Zeno is coordinator at the John Paul II Centre in Phoenix, Arizona.
The course is the result of a collaboration between Sydney Catholic Youth and the Life, Marriage and Family team from the Diocese of Broken Bay and has the endorsement of Bishop Michael Kennedy of the Armidale Diocese.
“The Theology of the Body facilitates a profound immersion into Scripture; a Trinitarian understanding of the human person as male and female and the complementarity between the two; a recognition of the reality of evil and its divisive consequences; a deeply spousal meaning to the human body; and an explication of redemption in the Holy Spirit, all of which invite every human person to flourish as a confident and beloved son or daughter of God,” Bishop Kennedy said.
He said the course would be perfect as professional development for teachers of the Studies in Catholic Thought syllabus, particularly for the Year 11 course focusing on the Human Person.
