Called for a Purpose: A Theology of the Laity
World renowned author and speaker Christopher West unpacks the Theology of the Body, Blessed Pope John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person—body, soul, and spirit—as male and female. In an intimate environment of study and prayer, participants discover the deep significance of: what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God; why God created us male and female; how the physical union of man and woman is innately oriented toward life and love; and how this union is the essential foundation for a life-affirming society.We can come to an understanding of human existence only through a proper understanding of human sexuality. West’s presentation of Theology of the Body, in the context of St. Thérèse's thought and spirituality—a St. Therese Institute exclusive—can enable students to live more wholly integrated lives, and discover that seeing the world through the lens of TOB is a key to deep rooted peace and joy.
Most of us have friends or family members who have left the Church or are sincerely seeking for spiritual truth. In this conference, participants will learn how to effectively share your faith with others. Students will: study the teachings of the Catholic Church on Theology of Evangelization, Mission, and Salvation; understand the role of the Holy Spirit and Mary in evangelization; learn what are the spiritual priorities of our time; know the significance of these days as the time of the New Evangelization and a Springtime of the Faith; deepen their spirituality to develop the virtues necessary for sharing your faith confidently and respectfully; learn how to present the Gospel message and share personal witness, so as to fruitfully proclaim the Gospel in the home, at the workplace, and in daily conversations.
To become a prophetic presence in a culture desperate for the taste of truth and the warmth of grace...
The world needs prophetic voices that speak the truth without fear, and yet with artistry, delight and imagination. Do you have artistic talents that have yet to be shared with those around you, in a way that could light up their path? Do you have words that need to be heard, but you aren’t sure how to begin? This is a conference to expand the horizon of your heart so that you can expand the horizons of those who meet you and who will be blessed by your future artistic work. This conference is your chance to be part of The Bard School (founded by presenter Sarah de Nordwall in London England), and to see your artistic inklings fanned into a flame.
Participants will engage in the 5 frontier conversations that characterise the Bard School’s learning sessions – Why do artists need theology and philosophy? What is the mystery of the artistic process? What is the nature of the artistic vocation and its calling to society? How does our personal maturity and healing in Christ affect our capacities as artists? The arts business – do I have to become a professional in the way the world understands it? What is my next step?
