High school girls are invited to the “Wonderfully Made” retreat on the Theology of the Body offered Saturday to Sunday, Feb. 9-10, at St. Mary of Providence Center in Elverson.
Along with talks, small groups Mass, adoration and time for confessions, the retreat will invite discussion about what it means to be a young, dynamic, Catholic woman in today’s world. It will introduce the Theology of the Body as St. John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person and human sexuality.
Samantha Kelley, a former Division I soccer player who holds a master’s degree in Catholic psychology and is a trained teacher in Theology of the Body, will lead the retreat. Dominican Father Timothy Danaher of St. Patrick Parish in Philadelphia will be the chaplain, and the Sisters of Life will facilitate small group sessions.
The St. Peter Respect Life Committee of St. Peter Parish in West Brandywine sponsors the retreat.
Cost for the retreat is $50 per person, with scholarships available, and includes lunch and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday.

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.
