A Vision for Love and Marriage in our Time
St. Paul students study Theology of the Body in their junior year religion curriculum. Why should the kids have all the fun? Adults in our St. Paul family are welcome to participate in a Franciscan Life Center retreat, February 16 and 17, for married and engaged couples, single adults, priests and religious, with presentations from the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist and lay faithful.

The retreat focuses on the Theology of the Body teaching from Saint Paul VI, whom Pope Francis canonized last October, and Saint John Paul II. This retreat is an enriching opportunity for those discerning a vocation, preparing for marriage, or living marriage and family life. Anyone can benefit from a deeper understanding of our call to relationship. Visit  flcenter.org or call 203-237-8084 for more information or to register. The cost is $65 for both days.
