Theology of the Body 101

Theology of the Body 101″

TOB can unlock the doors for a truly happy life. Come get the keys!

Monday, April 29 from 6:30-8:30 pm

This is a great introduction and recap to OLC’s Theology of the Body (TOB)series. If you haven’t been able to attend the others, make time for this one! If you have attended the others, this night will pull everything together.

Presenter Mary Jo Thayer, M.A., has made TOB the heart of her personal and professional life. Hearing Christopher West speak in 1996 changed her forever as a wife, mother, moral theology teacher, public speaker, retreat leader, and published author. The Holy Spirit inspired her to weave TOB into everything she does. This dynamic PowerPoint presentation aims to inspire, reorient, and encourage the desires of the human heart.
