How about a little TOB with your summer?

While summer months usually bring to mind sunny weather and vacations, I want to encourage you to think about boosting your effectiveness in the New Evangelization during these next few months. In between your downtime and getaways, why not fit a little Theology of the Body education into your schedule?

Please write down the following dates on your calendar:

Head and Heart Integration Course, August 3-8, 2014, north of Atlanta, Georgia

Sponsored by Regnum Christi, this event is for LC priests, RC consecrated and lay members of the movement who want to get a better understanding of this enlightening catechesis from our late pope.

“After the recent canonization of St. John Paul the Great, we hope to help others experience the beauty of this profound and timely teaching,” said Charlene Alexander, one of the event speakers. “As RC members, we also hope to learn more about the healing that needs to take place in each person and in the culture we aspire to evangelize.”

Other speakers will be Fr. Martin Connor LC, Tom McCabe and Suzy Grybas.

The event takes places at the beautiful Carmel Retreat Center in Hoschton, north of Atlanta.
