Morning Talk - Theology of the Body
This talk is adapted to the age of the audience as it digs into the importance of Chastity as an integral part of the human person. The focus surrounds the general human vocation of Chastity as the life giving self giving love that all are called to and the dignity of the human person as created in the image and likeness of God. Key teaching centers around John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and Love and Responsibility.
Morning Talk - Made for More
Fr. Josh Waltz
Due to growing apathy in our world the nemesis of mediocrity is an increasing vice that is assaulting young people. In this talk we will explore the ways in which we can push ourselves to grow in virtue, holiness, and ultimately to discover the secret to become saints!
Girls Afternoon Talk - True Femininity
This workshop is eye-opening for all as it brings light to the issue of feminism confronting women in their earliest years with the crisis of self identity. As men and women created equally in the image and likeness of God, this workshop will focus on the unique gift of women through their friendships, beauty, and virtue. This talk is rich in the teaching of the Church, which speaks distinctly to the gifts women offer to the world through the feminine genius.
Boys Afternoon Talk - Be a Man
Fr. Josh Waltz
One of the greatest assaults on the human person happening in modern day America is the assault on true masculinity. Men have been sold a counterfeit image of what a real man is. This talk will explore true masculinity through the eyes of the Church and as modeled in the person of Jesus Christ!
