This “Retreat-Style Crash Course” will provide an excellent introduction to Theology of the Body and a solid understanding of God’s plan for humanity. The very experienced FRP instructor will use the DVD series from Ascension Press entitled, An Intro to Theology of the Body: Discovering God’s Master Plan for Your Life. [Written as an eight-part study to gather weekly for 8 weeks, we’ve consolidated all eight sessions into this retreat-style crash course with time for reflection, discussion and prayer; ending in time for the 5pm Vigil Mass at St. Margaret Mary (if you choose to attend).]
The course will address the two most fundamental and universal questions:
- 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 and become Fully Alive — young, old; single, married; clergy & religious! [Participants under age 18 attend with parental discretion]

John is a graduate of Western Kentucky University who loves hunting, fishing, hiking, theater, videography and playing baseball.
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 developing disciples was the ultimate goal.
John has attended & led pilgrimages to the last 4 World Youth Days: Madrid, Spain; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Kraków, Poland; Panama City, Panamá and he and his wife are planning to attend together this year in Lisbon, Portugal.
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 and only 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!
John married his wonderful wife, Crystal in October of 2019. Together they strive to understand, embrace and live Theology of the Body!
