Theology of the Body - Upcoming Events

Rosaryville invites you to a program sponsored by The Theology of the Body Institute, the Institute of Priestly Formation and Creighton University with facilitation by Dr. Christopher West. 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. This “Head and Heart" Immersion Course offers rigorous academic study and seeks to facilitate personally integration of the material, helping students to journey from "head to heart."

Christopher West is a renowned educator, best-selling author, cultural commentator, and a popular theologian who specializes in making the dense scholarship of the late John Paul II's Theology of the Body accessible to a wide audience.
