Called to Love: Theology of the Body Continuing Education Series

January 14, 2015 — February 4, 2015 (6:30pm - 8:30pm)

The Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family announces the Spring 2015 Continuing Education course, "Called to Love: Theology of the Body."  

This course studies John Paul II’s Man and Woman He Created Them: A Theology of the Body —his “Wednesday catecheses”—through a reading of the text and a discussion of his scriptural, theological, and philosophical methodology. It shows how the dual unity of man and woman and their interpersonal communion, even in the body, image divine trinitarian life. Special emphasis will be made on the foundations of the Theology of the Body in the Christian tradition. The course will draw also on other
works by John Paul II that deal with marriage and the family, such as The Jeweler’s
Shop
, Love and Responsibility, and the Roman Triptych.

The course meets on Wednesday evenings, 6:30-8:30 p.m. beginning January 14, and can be taken toward renewal requirements for VCEA licensure. Numerous high schools in the Archdiocese of Washington also accept the course for CEU credits.  The registration form is available for download at the right.

For more information, email information@johnpaulii.edu or call 202.526.3799. The class fee is $150.
