B12 – St. Michael’s College School: Challenging Conversations: St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body

Presenters: Calvin Cahatol & Stephen Antolin
Audience: Secondary

Given messages from contemporary secular culture, media, and misinformation about the Catholic Catechism it can be challenging for contemporary teenagers (and teachers) to navigate virtues and vices when it comes to issues of sexuality, relationships, gender and identity inside and outside of the classroom. Using the lens of Catholic Moral Theology, principally Pope John Paul II`s “Theology of the Body,” this workshop deals with teaching contemporary issues of sexual education, relationships and identity with a grounded Catholic perspective. Leaving this workshop you will feel more competent when navigating a range of challenging conversations while promoting Catholic values.
