8-part series meeting on Wednesday evenings:

6:00pm – 8:15pm

The world has changed. The modern presentation of personhood has challenges that didn’t exist in the past. All of us are constantly seeing & hearing conflicting messages … simply giving a list of rules to follow is not enough, we need more. We need to understand that each of us is a unique, unrepeatable creation of God, in all aspects of our lives.

EXPLORE: Discovering the Adventure God Made for You is an exciting and dynamic 8-part series created and facilitated by Family Renewal Project. EXPLORE will help students discover their story and enable them to successfully and safely navigate through life. EXPLORE guides students and their parents through the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, introducing them to the beautiful truths of our unique call to love.

The series at Immaculate Conception in LaGrange is geared for students in 6-8th grades and their parents. Ideally both parents will be able to attend each session, but this isn’t always feasible. Please plan for at least one parent or the other to attend each session {it is okay to rotate attendance}. On the rare occasion that neither parent can attend, your child(ren) is encouraged to attend, but another adult will need to accompany his/her (this can be another parent who is already attending).

Participants will —

  • learn how to live in authentic freedom, love & happiness
  • learn what healthy relationships look like and how to live a life of sacrifice and discipleship
  • discover your story through scripture and theology of the body

Pizza, drinks, snacks will be provided.

Attendance is FREE, but registration is required! Sign up today — space is limited!

Facilitator:

John Sohl

John is a graduate of Western Kentucky University who loves hunting, fishing, hiking, theater, videography and after a long hiatus since playing D1 baseball, he returned to the field this summer in a young adult league!

After discerning the call to the priesthood, John transitioned from seminary to the role of discipleship leader in the Archdiocese of Louisville. Some may say “youth minister,” but after five years of dedication to youth, John realized that if he’s really doing his job, he’s developing disciples. (Those who know him can attest that he’s “really doing his job.”)

John has attended & led pilgrimages to the last 4 World Youth Days: Madrid, Spain, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Kraków, Poland, Panama City, Panamá.

For over six years, John served as the only male chastity instructor in the Archdiocese of Louisville. Every school year he & one of his female counterparts would teach a multi-day course at over 40 schools (Catholic, private, and public).

John is now the first person in the Archdiocese of Louisville to have completed his Master’s Certification in Theology of the Body from the TOB Institute … a major accomplishment!

In October 2019, John married his sweetheart, Crystal!  They attended their first TOB immersion course together in the Fall of 2019 and are now leading intro sessions for couples.

Theology of the Body in the Archdiocese of Louisville

A few years ago, Family Renewal Project initiated a dialogue with the ArchLou Superintendent of Schools and other Agency Directors which led to the decision to add Theology of the Body as a permanent standard in the K-8th grade curriculum.

FRP’s mission is to support teachers, administrators, parents to learn and live the beautiful teachings of our Church as presented through the lens of TOB.
