Living the Gift: Sex Ed and Parenting

February 4 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Living the Gift: Sex Ed and Parenting

St. Anthony Parish Adult Formation Series, 2019-2020

This series of presentations will help you understand and appreciate the Catholic Church’s beautiful teachings on love, sex, and marriage. In addition to showing how natural law, social science, and personal stories can help us better understand those teachings, the series will address confusions about marriage and sexuality in our culture today. The reading list was designed for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia by CanaVox, an international, ecumenical marriage movement supported by the Witherspoon Institute. There are short readings and/or videos available below. Participants will get more out of the seminar if they read/watch this material in advance of the meeting. The series will be led by Nathan and Elizabeth Schlueter. Nathan is a professor of philosophy and religion at Hillsdale College and Elizabeth is the Michigan state director for CanaVox. They have been married for 22 years and have nine children. All are welcome, Catholic or non-Catholic. We will meet at 8:00 p.m. in the parish hall.
