Theology of the Body parent book study

I would like to begin one or more small group book discussions for parents about Theology of the Body for Beginners. Even though this book is for beginners, I personally would not consider it an easy read. I have been familiar with St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body for awhile, and I learned a lot from this book.

Please email me at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  if you would be interested in being part of a virtual small group. Also, let me know what days/times would work best for you. It doesn’t matter if you have read the entire book or if you haven’t read any of it yet.If you are a new family who did not receive a copy last year, please let Suzi know if you would like one.  ~from Cathy Buehler, Saint Thomas parent and Chair of the Saint Thomas Board of Education's Mission Effectiveness Committee.
