For the first five years of his pontificate, Pope John Paul II spent his Wednesday audiences addressing the fundamental questions: Who am I? What does it mean to be human? Why did God create us male and female? What is the meaning of the human body?
If you’ve ever wondered why the Church teaches what she does about life, marriage, human love and relationships, or if you’ve been struggling how to explain the Church’s teachings to others, St. Maria Goretti Parish in Hatfield presents an introduction to the Theology of the Body. The parish invites everyone to come learn why so many lives are being changed by it!
Meghan Cokeley, director of the archdiocesan Office for the New Evangelization, speaks on “Man and Woman He Created Them: An Introduction to the Theology of the Body” Thursday, Jan. 16 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the chapel of St. Maria Goretti Church, located at Cowpath and Derstine Roads in Hatfield, Montgomery County.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
