Human Love in the Divine Plan: A Theology of the Body (TOB), Part Two

After an explosion of interest and desire to go deeper into the rich thought of St. John Paul II, we’ve opened a deeper mine of insight and application in the gift and sign of human sexuality with internationally acclaimed Theology of the Body educator Bill Donaghy.

Total classes: 14

Prerequisite: Human Love in the Divine Plan: A Theology of the Body (TOB), Part One

Suggested grade level: 11th to 12th grade or advanced 10th grade

Suggested credit: One full semester Theology


We will be returning to and spiraling deeper into the major themes of the Theology of the Body, making more applicable connections in the realm of masculine and feminine identity and vocational discernment for older students. Students will also be better equipped to understand and address the current gender ideologies and LGBTQ+ movement, using both clarity and charity to learn and share the truth and beauty of the Gospel!
