Collegium Center hosts talks on teaching the Theology of the Body


The Collegium Center for Faith and Culture in Haddon Heights will host a series of events next week on teaching Theology of the Body to youth.

Monica Ashour, of the Theology of the Body evangelization team, will speak at both events.

During his papal audiences in the 1970s and 1980s, Pope John Paul II presented lectures on Theology of the Body, reflecting on God’s creation of male and female, and his vision of human sexuality, marriage and family.

On Monday, Sept. 28, Ashour will present “Raising Children with an Understanding of Theology of the Body,” for parents.

On Wednesday, Sept. 30, she will present “Teaching Theology of the Body to Young Children,” for priests, deacons, school and CCD teachers, and lay ministers.

Both events begin at 7 p.m.
