Talks on Theology of the Body

The John Paul II Resource Center is pleased to offer the following one-hour talks available to parishes in the Diocese of Phoenix. Because the Resource Center is privately funded and not supported by the Charity and Development Appeal (other than paying for our cubicle space at the Diocesan Pastoral Center), we would gratefully appreciate a donation* by the sponsoring organization to the Resource Center in order to continue our educational work within the diocese.
