Family Life Education Curriculum FairAt Our Mother of Confidence Parish3131 Governor DrSan Diego, CA 92122Thursday, September 22 from 9:30am-2:30pm As Catholic parents, ministers, catechists, and educators, we are entrusted with the task of helping our children and youth develop a healthy and holy understanding of their bodies and of God’s gift of human sexuality. Too often, we lack the necessary resources or we feel inadequate to the task of witnessing the beauty of Church teaching on marriage and family. In the spirit of empowering our parishes, schools, and families to form their children in the good news of family life, the Offices for Family Life & Spirituality and Evangelization & Catechetical Ministry will be co-hosting a Family Life Education Curriculum Fair at Our Mother of Confidence Parish (3131 Governor Dr, San Diego, CA 92122) on Thursday, September 22 from 9:30am-2:30pm. We are excited to have so many great publishers on hand, including Ascension Press, Theology of the Body Evangelization Team, Love Ed, Teen STAR, Ruah Woods, and more. Parents, Catechists, DCMs, Youth Ministers, School Admins, and Parishioners are highly encouraged to attend. The event is free and lunch is included. Please register at sdcatholicdisciples.net. For more information, contact John Prust (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Joseph Horejs (email@example.com). www.santasophia.org/family-life-education-curriculum-fair/... See MoreSee Less
