Online retreat to enrich your marriage

In time for St Valentine's Day, Karee Santos, over at Can We Cana? is offering a webinar-style online retreat for married couples. Register for one or both presentations.

Here's the scope:

I. Life-giving Unity: Becoming One with Your Spouse and Your Children  

The marital relationship is the bedrock of any family. Reignite your appreciation for your spouse, and let your renewed unity strengthen your relationship with your children as well. Learn how to communicate better, pray more together, and grow closer to God together.

Evening Session: Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 7:30-8:30 pm EST

II. Holy Stewards: Making the Most of Your Time and Your Money  

We all struggle to find enough time for work, family, and God. We might also sometimes let worries over money and professional advancement affect our marital relationship. Maintaining a good balance is difficult, but not impossible. Explore useful ways to make the most of what you have.

Mid-day Session:  Monday, Feb. 10, at 12:30-1:30 pm EST

TOB course with Christopher West in Louisiana

April 27 - May 2, 2014
Taught by
Christopher West
 Rosaryville Spirit Life Center
Ponchatoula, Louisiana

Blessed John Paul II's Theology of the Body is not only intellectually stimulating. The truths it proclaims are life-changing, especially for those wounded by the lies of our sexually-charged culture. 
Paul and CW 
This "Head and Heart" Immersion Course offers rigorous academic study and seeks to facilitate personal integration of the material, helping students journey from "head to heart." 

The Theology of the Body Institute is pleased to offer this one-of-a-kind course in conjunction with the Institute for Priestly Formation and Creighton University. 

Learn more about the Theology of the Body Head and Heart Immersion Course on the TOB Institute's website; register online for the TOB course here.

A note from Sister Anne: I participated in the Theology of the Body Head and Heart Course (part 1) a year and a half ago. It offered a great overview of the whole of Pope John Paul's text, but blended--this is the "immersion" part--with life applications (especially for those called to married life) and connection to prayer, music and art. I highly recommend the program!
