Theology of the Body & Art: Way of Beauty with Bill Donaghy
Malvern Retreat House
Start Date and Time:
Sunday July 21st 12PM
End Date and Time
Friday 26th 12PM
The heart of the Theology of the Body & Art course will be the invitation for students to “walk the Way of Beauty” as a path leading to God, and to see Beauty as a key to evangelizing others into an encounter with God.
This course will use St. John Paul II’s Letter to Artists as its primary source material, in addition to the Theology of the Body addresses, as well as Pope Benedict XVI’s Address to Artists – 2009, and Evangelii Guadium by Pope Francis and the Via Pulchritudinis by Pope Benedict XVI.
In addition to reflective readings, there will be a direct and focused gaze on classical and modern works of art of various mediums, primarily painting and sculpture, but not excluding poetry, music, and cinema.
The instructor for this Theology of the Body retreat is Bill Donaghy.
Bill Donaghy is an instructor, international speaker, and curriculum specialist for the Theology of the Body Institute Certification Program. He has worked in the fields of mission and evangelization since 1999 and has given talks and retreats to bishops, priests, deacons, consecrated men and women, and the lay faithful throughout the United States, as well as Canada, Mexico, Chile, Australia, and Papua New Guinea. He and his wife, Rebecca, live just outside of Philadelphia, PA with their four children.
