Teens are facing unique challenges in the culture today, especially those concerning sexuality and human and divine love.  Today’s challenges need to be addressed with a “new language” that explains how authentic Christianity makes sense because it corresponds perfectly with the deepest desires of the human heart.  Bill Donaghy will present a training for leaders & adults on how to teach pre-teens and teens this teaching based on John Paul II's Theology of the Body on October 16 and 17, 2014. An Intro to TOB course will be offered on October 18.  Find more information at dioceseoflansing.org/vocations or contact Dawn Hausmann for further questions: 517-342-2506  dhausmann@dioceseoflansing.org
