A former professor of moral theology at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary has organized an international conference June 28-30 in the Netherlands on Theology of the Body, the teaching by St. John Paul II on God’s plan for human sexuality.
Peter J. Colosi along with three other Catholic thinkers has put together four previous such gatherings in Austria, Ireland, England and Portugal. He currently teaches philosophy at Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island, and from 2009 to 2015 he was a professor of moral theology at St. Charles.
The fifth symposium titled “Defending and Promoting Human Dignity in a Secular Age” will be held at Rolduc Abbey, Kerkrade, Netherlands. Colosi is one of 11 international speakers.
It will welcome from around the world Catholics interested in, as the event’s website states, “healing the current cultural situation of the church and humanity with respect to sexuality, marriage, the family, education and human happiness by exploring ever deeper the goodness, truth and beauty of the divine plan for human life and love.”
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.
