Introducing Friday Night Lights

Last year's Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Lively Virtues was a huge hit, with over 40 families registered and attending Friday nights once per month to learn and grow together in a fun and faith-filled environment. 

To keep these good fires burning in our CWA parents and families, this year's Friday Night Lights program will be Theology of the Body.  An Introduction to the Theology of the Body  is a comprehensive group study system designed to lay a firm foundation for those desiring to learn and incorporate the Theology of the Body into their lives. This is a bold, new series that incorporates the revised translation of John Paul II's original text, along with the "hidden talks" of the Theology of the Body - only recently discovered in the Vatican archives. An Introduction to the Theology of the Body is for any "body" looking to reach his or her fullest potential in this life.

The sessions will run: 
October 13, November 3, December 1, January 12, February 2, March 2, April 13, May 4  in the  Athlone Hall Auditorium
 
Begins with Mass at 6:30 p.m. followed by the formal program at 7:00 p.m., hearty group discussion, and social time with wine and cheese - concludes a 9:00 p.m.
 
◦$50 Registration fee per person
◦$90 Registration fee per couple
$100 additional babysitting fee per family (this covers childcare for all 8 sessions)
