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.
