ECHO: Theology of the Body Retreat
20 October Retreat
God calls us to live in the fullness of life. But what does that look like in the 21st century? With so many questions on identity, dignity and faith swirling around us, it can be hard to find truth. Thankfully, St Pope John Paul II has left for us a beautiful series of teachings, commonly known as Theology of the Body, which reveals the truth of who we are and what we were created for.

WYD Panama 2019
