Event Overview

Year 1, Seminar D: Marriage: Myths and the Beautiful Reality

Hopefully we do not get our ideas about marriage from our current culture.  Do we realize that marriage can mirror Christ’s love for the Church?  And that through marriage, God’s love is made visible? This seminar explains the vows of marriage, the purpose of marriage, and chastity as preparation for any vocation.  It also explains how sexual activity, used contrary to its purpose, has wide-reaching negative effects.  Thank goodness the Church has always treasured marriage and the beauty of marital intimacy.

Year 2, Seminar D: Truth in a Disordered World

If Blessed Pope Paul VI were alive, he would be justified in saying, “I told you so.”  His prophetic document Humanae Vitae, along with an explanation of the times when this document and Pope St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body were written will show us how we got into this mess (the Culture of Death), and how we can get out of it. How much can we trust the Church?  This seminar will answer that, and present the Virtues, and what it means to have a true Catholic Worldview, of course along with some practical assistance for living out our faith.

Year 3, Seminar D: Encountering College Life

We review many “–isms” which we’ve covered in the first three seminars, and a few more which will be encountered in college and adult life, relating them back to the topics discussed this year. Teens have a chance to interact with the material they have heard throughout the program, learning to identify false worldviews and to more fully understand, live by, and defend the teachings of the Church.  What are our civic duties?  How do we take on the responsibility of voting?  What on earth is that professor talking about?  What about my dorm roommate who has a vastly different code of moral behavior than I do?  Brace yourselves! This seminar presents a realistic view of college life with the goal of entering into adult life prepared for happy, holy, and healthy careers, families, and futures.
