This intro to Theology of the Body addresses the most fundamental and universal questions about life and is designed to assist you in discovering God’s plan for your life and provide a solid understanding of His plan for humanity.
What does it mean to be made human, male and female, in the image and likeness of God?   How can I live my life in a way that brings happiness and fulfillment?
This study is for every “body” who desires to reach his or her full potential in this life.

Facilitators:

Cathy Blandford (Tuesdays – Virtual)

Cathy is a mother of five children (all boys) and the grandmother of nine beautiful grandchildren. She was a stay-at-home mom and ‘consummate church volunteer’ until her youngest son went to school.

Cathy formally began parish work in 1992 at St. Martha parish, where her children went to school.  Later she served as Pastoral Associate at St. Francis Xavier (Mt. Washington) and All Saints (Taylorsville); her last 9 years she served as Pastoral Associate at St. Peter the Apostle.  She retired on December 31, 2017.

She completed a two-year Ministry Formation Program and was commissioned by Archbishop Kelly as a lay minister in 1993.  She received certification in Ministry Studies at Spalding University’s Russell Institute of Religion and Ministry, in collaboration with the Archdiocese of Louisville, in 1996.  In 2001, Cathy was awarded Master Catechist certification for the Archdiocese of Louisville.

Cathy has a long-standing devotion to St. John Paul II. From the moment in 2012 when Archbishop Kurtz and Leisa Shulz, our superintendent of schools announced that Theology of the Body would be incorporated into the middle school classrooms in the Archdiocese Cathy became an avid student of these beautiful teachings.

Along with many books, videos, and seminars, she has attended two of the 30-hour graduate level immersion courses at the Theology of the Body Institute. In 2014 she began teaching Theology of the Body at her local parish with over 200 people participating in various courses.

Cathy is devoted to spreading these beautiful teachings and generous beyond measure with her time and talent.

John Sohl (Thursdays – In-Person)

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.

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

John has completed seven 30-hour graduate level immersion courses at the Theology of the Body Institute. After one final course and completion of his practicum, John will be the first person in the Archdiocese of Louisville to receive his Master’s Certification in Theology of the Body from the TOB Institute … a major accomplishment!

John is married to his sweetheart, Crystal, as of October 2019!

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.
