Are you ready? New TOB program coming soon!

We are in the planning stages of a 12-session video series on the Theology of the Body, to be led by Father Robert Sprott (best known here in Chicago for his annual series at the Newberry Library).

The six chapters of Pope John Paul's masterwork will be covered in two one-hour segments each, for a total of twelve classes. Filming begins in April, but that is about as far as we have gotten. (Father transferred to a new parish over the summer and was only able to confirm this week that he would be available.) Most likely we will film the series a chapter at a time (two hours per recording session).

Our Founder, the media apostle Blessed James Alberione, told us that our mission must always "start from Bethlehem"--in poverty. That about sums up the resources we have to bring this project about. We need sponsors to underwrite the costs of video (film crew, lighting and supplies) and a just stipend for Father. Do you know anyone who is especially interested in promoting a greater appreciation of the most misunderstood aspects of the Gospel message? Here's their chance!

We will also need an audience for each of the sessions! Check back soon for a calendar and sign-up.
