    Interested in our Nine-Month Faith Formation Program? Or maybe you know someone else who wants to venture deeper into their faith and understanding of the Church?

    Experience the St. Therese program first-hand during our Come and See week, February 17-21, held conveniently during your reading week / spring break!

    Come for an afternoon, overnight, or for the whole week, and enjoy sports, community, music, and the opportunity to encounter God in a new way. There will be lots of flexibility: time for study, optional sit-in classes, and the chance to get answers to any questions you might have about the program.

    The application for the Faith Formation Program is free and can be found at www.St-T.ca/ApplyToday or through the 9-Month Program menu item. If you can’t make it to this Come and See, we also have our annual Lenten Conference (Feb 28-Mar. 1) for a mini-'come-and-see' opportunity. On top of that, we have our Springtime in the Faith course weeks (March - May) which are also great opportunities to experience St. Therese while receiving good faith formation.

    The Christ is Alive! Weekend Retreat is offered for young disciples (ages 16–30) who have experienced the initial proclamation of the Gospel and desire to deepen their friendship with Christ.

    A key inspiration for this retreat is Christus Vivit, Pope Francis’s recent letter to young men and women, which speaks of the importance of young people journeying with each other in life. The Christ is Alive! retreat, through Scripture, the sacraments, community, and prayer, provides an opportunity to grow in intimacy with Christ. From that foundation, young people will be better equipped to accompany others on the path of holiness. Small groups from parishes or high schools are encouraged to attend together, so that participants can continue accompanying each other as they go forward.

    PLEASE DO NOT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE! Thanks :) -- James

    Using resources* from world renowned author and speaker Christopher West, join us as we unpack the Theology of the Body, Pope St. John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person—body, soul, and spirit—as male and female. These teackings will be augmented through reflection upon the wisdom and insight of St. Thérèse of Lisieux — an exclusive component compiled by Christopher West specifically for this course at St. Therese Institute!

    In an intimate environment of study and prayer, following the St. Therese students’ way of life, participants discover the deep significance of: what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God; why God created us male and female; how the physical union of man and woman is innately oriented toward life and love; and how this union is the essential foundation for a life-affirming society, all in the light of the doctrine of spiritual childhood and the Little Way of St. Thérèse.

    We can come to an understanding of human existence only through a proper understanding of human sexuality. West’s presentation of Theology of the Body in the context of St. Thérèse thought and spirituality can enable students to live more wholly integrated lives and discover that seeing the world through the lens of ToB is a key to deep rooted peace and joy.

    With reflection on the principles of interfaith dialogue and ecumenism established in the Second Vatican Council and developed during the recent pontificates, students will learn about the four stages in coming to an active faith in Jesus Christ and his Church: the grounds for a belief in God, the reasonableness for belief in Christ, the validity of the Catholic Church and its claims, and the necessity in this time of the new evangelization for an active and evangelical practice of the Catholic faith. Students will discuss questions including: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Etc.

    "Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence." (1 Peter 3:15)

    • Learn to speak to the heart of those who would like to believe in God, to believe in Christ, understand the Catholic Church, and be actively faith-filled.
    • How can we answer the questions like: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Why does the Catholic Church teach _____? What about the reality of evil in the world?
    • How do we respond charitably to the divisions that exist among the disciples of Jesus today.
    • How can the work of defending the faith really be used in service of unity among all believers?
    • How can apologetics be used in service of building authentic Christian unity? How can apologetics be truly ecumenical?

    "Welcome the new springtime which the Spirit is now bringing about in the Church… In his gifts the Spirit is multifaceted…He breathes where he wills. He does so unexpectedly, in unexpected places, and in ways previously unheard of… but he also shows us that he works with a view to the one body and in the unity of the one body." Pope Benedict XVI

It is a powerful tools to live out the teaching of the Church on what is often called "Theology of the Body".

    TeenSTAR (www.teenstar.org) is a developmental and age- and gender-appropriate curriculum for sexuality education for ages preteen to college-aged. The curriculum is rooted in sound moral, psychological and physiological principles, which uses the Billings method of understanding human fertility patterns "to teach responsible decisionmaking and communication skills in the area of sexual behavior and enhances teens' self-understanding and self-esteem." The TeenSTAR curriculum is consistent with the moral teachings of the Catholic Church on human sexuality and the understanding of the nuptial meaning of the human body as expressed in a theology of the body. TeenSTAR is taught effectively in countries throughout the world and can be offered in both secular and religious contexts.

    TeenSTAR was developed in the 1980's by Sr. Hanna Claus, MD, an OB/GYN doctor, consecrated religious with the Medical Mission Sisters, and Director of the Natural Family Planning Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

    This one week certification workshop will enable students to teach the TeenSTAR curriculum as a part of their individual apostolate.

    The Christ is Alive! Weekend Retreat is offered for young disciples (ages 16–30) who have experienced the initial proclamation of the Gospel and desire to deepen their friendship with Christ.

    A key inspiration for this retreat is Christus Vivit, Pope Francis’s recent letter to young men and women, which speaks of the importance of young people journeying with each other in life. The Christ is Alive! retreat, through Scripture, the sacraments, community, and prayer, provides an opportunity to grow in intimacy with Christ. From that foundation, young people will be better equipped to accompany others on the path of holiness. Small groups from parishes or high schools are encouraged to attend together, so that participants can continue accompanying each other as they go forward.

    Using resources* from world renowned author and speaker Christopher West, join us as we unpack the Theology of the Body, Pope St. John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person—body, soul, and spirit—as male and female. These teackings will be augmented through reflection upon the wisdom and insight of St. Thérèse of Lisieux — an exclusive component compiled by Christopher West specifically for this course at St. Therese Institute!

    In an intimate environment of study and prayer, following the St. Therese students’ way of life, participants discover the deep significance of: what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God; why God created us male and female; how the physical union of man and woman is innately oriented toward life and love; and how this union is the essential foundation for a life-affirming society, all in the light of the doctrine of spiritual childhood and the Little Way of St. Thérèse.

    We can come to an understanding of human existence only through a proper understanding of human sexuality. West’s presentation of Theology of the Body in the context of St. Thérèse thought and spirituality can enable students to live more wholly integrated lives and discover that seeing the world through the lens of ToB is a key to deep rooted peace and joy.

    With reflection on the principles of interfaith dialogue and ecumenism established in the Second Vatican Council and developed during the recent pontificates, students will learn about the four stages in coming to an active faith in Jesus Christ and his Church: the grounds for a belief in God, the reasonableness for belief in Christ, the validity of the Catholic Church and its claims, and the necessity in this time of the new evangelization for an active and evangelical practice of the Catholic faith. Students will discuss questions including: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Etc.

    "Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence." (1 Peter 3:15)

    • Learn to speak to the heart of those who would like to believe in God, to believe in Christ, understand the Catholic Church, and be actively faith-filled.
    • How can we answer the questions like: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Why does the Catholic Church teach _____? What about the reality of evil in the world?
    • How do we respond charitably to the divisions that exist among the disciples of Jesus today.
    • How can the work of defending the faith really be used in service of unity among all believers?
    • How can apologetics be used in service of building authentic Christian unity? How can apologetics be truly ecumenical?

    "Welcome the new springtime which the Spirit is now bringing about in the Church… In his gifts the Spirit is multifaceted…He breathes where he wills. He does so unexpectedly, in unexpected places, and in ways previously unheard of… but he also shows us that he works with a view to the one body and in the unity of the one body." Pope Benedict XVI

It is a powerful tools to live out the teaching of the Church on what is often called "Theology of the Body".

    TeenSTAR (www.teenstar.org) is a developmental and age- and gender-appropriate curriculum for sexuality education for ages preteen to college-aged. The curriculum is rooted in sound moral, psychological and physiological principles, which uses the Billings method of understanding human fertility patterns "to teach responsible decisionmaking and communication skills in the area of sexual behavior and enhances teens' self-understanding and self-esteem." The TeenSTAR curriculum is consistent with the moral teachings of the Catholic Church on human sexuality and the understanding of the nuptial meaning of the human body as expressed in a theology of the body. TeenSTAR is taught effectively in countries throughout the world and can be offered in both secular and religious contexts.

    TeenSTAR was developed in the 1980's by Sr. Hanna Claus, MD, an OB/GYN doctor, consecrated religious with the Medical Mission Sisters, and Director of the Natural Family Planning Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

    This one week certification workshop will enable students to teach the TeenSTAR curriculum as a part of their individual apostolate.

    Using resources* from world renowned author and speaker Christopher West, join us as we unpack the Theology of the Body, Pope St. John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person—body, soul, and spirit—as male and female. These teackings will be augmented through reflection upon the wisdom and insight of St. Thérèse of Lisieux — an exclusive component compiled by Christopher West specifically for this course at St. Therese Institute!

    In an intimate environment of study and prayer, following the St. Therese students’ way of life, participants discover the deep significance of: what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God; why God created us male and female; how the physical union of man and woman is innately oriented toward life and love; and how this union is the essential foundation for a life-affirming society, all in the light of the doctrine of spiritual childhood and the Little Way of St. Thérèse.

    We can come to an understanding of human existence only through a proper understanding of human sexuality. West’s presentation of Theology of the Body in the context of St. Thérèse thought and spirituality can enable students to live more wholly integrated lives and discover that seeing the world through the lens of ToB is a key to deep rooted peace and joy.

    The Christ is Alive! Weekend Retreat is offered for young disciples (ages 16–30) who have experienced the initial proclamation of the Gospel and desire to deepen their friendship with Christ.

    A key inspiration for this retreat is Christus Vivit, Pope Francis’s recent letter to young men and women, which speaks of the importance of young people journeying with each other in life. The Christ is Alive! retreat, through Scripture, the sacraments, community, and prayer, provides an opportunity to grow in intimacy with Christ. From that foundation, young people will be better equipped to accompany others on the path of holiness. Small groups from parishes or high schools are encouraged to attend together, so that participants can continue accompanying each other as they go forward.

    Using resources* from world renowned author and speaker Christopher West, join us as we unpack the Theology of the Body, Pope St. John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person—body, soul, and spirit—as male and female. These teackings will be augmented through reflection upon the wisdom and insight of St. Thérèse of Lisieux — an exclusive component compiled by Christopher West specifically for this course at St. Therese Institute!

    In an intimate environment of study and prayer, following the St. Therese students’ way of life, participants discover the deep significance of: what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God; why God created us male and female; how the physical union of man and woman is innately oriented toward life and love; and how this union is the essential foundation for a life-affirming society, all in the light of the doctrine of spiritual childhood and the Little Way of St. Thérèse.

    We can come to an understanding of human existence only through a proper understanding of human sexuality. West’s presentation of Theology of the Body in the context of St. Thérèse thought and spirituality can enable students to live more wholly integrated lives and discover that seeing the world through the lens of ToB is a key to deep rooted peace and joy.

    With reflection on the principles of interfaith dialogue and ecumenism established in the Second Vatican Council and developed during the recent pontificates, students will learn about the four stages in coming to an active faith in Jesus Christ and his Church: the grounds for a belief in God, the reasonableness for belief in Christ, the validity of the Catholic Church and its claims, and the necessity in this time of the new evangelization for an active and evangelical practice of the Catholic faith. Students will discuss questions including: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Etc.

    "Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence." (1 Peter 3:15)

    • Learn to speak to the heart of those who would like to believe in God, to believe in Christ, understand the Catholic Church, and be actively faith-filled.
    • How can we answer the questions like: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Why does the Catholic Church teach _____? What about the reality of evil in the world?
    • How do we respond charitably to the divisions that exist among the disciples of Jesus today.
    • How can the work of defending the faith really be used in service of unity among all believers?
    • How can apologetics be used in service of building authentic Christian unity? How can apologetics be truly ecumenical?

    "Welcome the new springtime which the Spirit is now bringing about in the Church… In his gifts the Spirit is multifaceted…He breathes where he wills. He does so unexpectedly, in unexpected places, and in ways previously unheard of… but he also shows us that he works with a view to the one body and in the unity of the one body." Pope Benedict XVI

It is a powerful tools to live out the teaching of the Church on what is often called "Theology of the Body".

    TeenSTAR (www.teenstar.org) is a developmental and age- and gender-appropriate curriculum for sexuality education for ages preteen to college-aged. The curriculum is rooted in sound moral, psychological and physiological principles, which uses the Billings method of understanding human fertility patterns "to teach responsible decisionmaking and communication skills in the area of sexual behavior and enhances teens' self-understanding and self-esteem." The TeenSTAR curriculum is consistent with the moral teachings of the Catholic Church on human sexuality and the understanding of the nuptial meaning of the human body as expressed in a theology of the body. TeenSTAR is taught effectively in countries throughout the world and can be offered in both secular and religious contexts.

    TeenSTAR was developed in the 1980's by Sr. Hanna Claus, MD, an OB/GYN doctor, consecrated religious with the Medical Mission Sisters, and Director of the Natural Family Planning Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

    This one week certification workshop will enable students to teach the TeenSTAR curriculum as a part of their individual apostolate.

There will be lots of flexibility: time for study, optional sit-in classes, and the chance to get answers to any questions you might have about the program.

    The application for the Faith Formation Program is free and can be found at www.St-T.ca/ApplyToday or through the 9-Month Program menu item. If you can’t make it to this Come and See, we also have our annual Lenten Conference (Feb 28-Mar. 1) for a mini-'come-and-see' opportunity. On top of that, we have our Springtime in the Faith course weeks (March - May) which are also great opportunities to experience St. Therese while receiving good faith formation.

    Information about all our upcoming events can be found at www.StTherese.ca/events

    The Christ is Alive! Weekend Retreat is offered for young disciples (ages 16–30) who have experienced the initial proclamation of the Gospel and desire to deepen their friendship with Christ.

    A key inspiration for this retreat is Christus Vivit, Pope Francis’s recent letter to young men and women, which speaks of the importance of young people journeying with each other in life. The Christ is Alive! retreat, through Scripture, the sacraments, community, and prayer, provides an opportunity to grow in intimacy with Christ. From that foundation, young people will be better equipped to accompany others on the path of holiness. Small groups from parishes or high schools are encouraged to attend together, so that participants can continue accompanying each other as they go forward.

    Using resources* from world renowned author and speaker Christopher West, join us as we unpack the Theology of the Body, Pope St. John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person—body, soul, and spirit—as male and female. These teackings will be augmented through reflection upon the wisdom and insight of St. Thérèse of Lisieux — an exclusive component compiled by Christopher West specifically for this course at St. Therese Institute!

    In an intimate environment of study and prayer, following the St. Therese students’ way of life, participants discover the deep significance of: what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God; why God created us male and female; how the physical union of man and woman is innately oriented toward life and love; and how this union is the essential foundation for a life-affirming society, all in the light of the doctrine of spiritual childhood and the Little Way of St. Thérèse.

    We can come to an understanding of human existence only through a proper understanding of human sexuality.

    With reflection on the principles of interfaith dialogue and ecumenism established in the Second Vatican Council and developed during the recent pontificates, students will learn about the four stages in coming to an active faith in Jesus Christ and his Church: the grounds for a belief in God, the reasonableness for belief in Christ, the validity of the Catholic Church and its claims, and the necessity in this time of the new evangelization for an active and evangelical practice of the Catholic faith. Students will discuss questions including: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Etc.

    "Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence." (1 Peter 3:15)

    • Learn to speak to the heart of those who would like to believe in God, to believe in Christ, understand the Catholic Church, and be actively faith-filled.
    • How can we answer the questions like: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Why does the Catholic Church teach _____? What about the reality of evil in the world?
    • How do we respond charitably to the divisions that exist among the disciples of Jesus today.
    • How can the work of defending the faith really be used in service of unity among all believers?
    • How can apologetics be used in service of building authentic Christian unity? How can apologetics be truly ecumenical?

    "Welcome the new springtime which the Spirit is now bringing about in the Church… In his gifts the Spirit is multifaceted…He breathes where he wills. He does so unexpectedly, in unexpected places, and in ways previously unheard of… but he also shows us that he works with a view to the one body and in the unity of the one body." Pope Benedict XVI

It is a powerful tools to live out the teaching of the Church on what is often called "Theology of the Body".

    TeenSTAR (www.teenstar.org) is a developmental and age- and gender-appropriate curriculum for sexuality education for ages preteen to college-aged. The curriculum is rooted in sound moral, psychological and physiological principles, which uses the Billings method of understanding human fertility patterns "to teach responsible decisionmaking and communication skills in the area of sexual behavior and enhances teens' self-understanding and self-esteem." The TeenSTAR curriculum is consistent with the moral teachings of the Catholic Church on human sexuality and the understanding of the nuptial meaning of the human body as expressed in a theology of the body. TeenSTAR is taught effectively in countries throughout the world and can be offered in both secular and religious contexts.

    TeenSTAR was developed in the 1980's by Sr. Hanna Claus, MD, an OB/GYN doctor, consecrated religious with the Medical Mission Sisters, and Director of the Natural Family Planning Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

    This one week certification workshop will enable students to teach the TeenSTAR curriculum as a part of their individual apostolate.

    Interested in our Nine-Month Faith Formation Program? Or maybe you know someone else who wants to venture deeper into their faith and understanding of the Church?

    Experience the St. Therese program first-hand during our Come and See week, February 17-21, held conveniently during your reading week / spring break!

    Come for an afternoon, overnight, or for the whole week, and enjoy sports, community, music, and the opportunity to encounter God in a new way. There will be lots of flexibility: time for study, optional sit-in classes, and the chance to get answers to any questions you might have about the program.

    The application for the Faith Formation Program is free and can be found at www.St-T.ca/ApplyToday or through the 9-Month Program menu item. If you can’t make it to this Come and See, we also have our annual Lenten Conference (Feb 28-Mar. 1) for a mini-'come-and-see' opportunity. On top of that, we have our Springtime in the Faith course weeks (March - May) which are also great opportunities to experience St. Therese while receiving good faith formation.

    Information about all our upcoming events can be found at www.StTherese.ca/events

    The Christ is Alive! Weekend Retreat is offered for young disciples (ages 16–30) who have experienced the initial proclamation of the Gospel and desire to deepen their friendship with Christ.

    A key inspiration for this retreat is Christus Vivit, Pope Francis’s recent letter to young men and women, which speaks of the importance of young people journeying with each other in life. The Christ is Alive! retreat, through Scripture, the sacraments, community, and prayer, provides an opportunity to grow in intimacy with Christ. From that foundation, young people will be better equipped to accompany others on the path of holiness. Small groups from parishes or high schools are encouraged to attend together, so that participants can continue accompanying each other as they go forward.

This conference will provide students with a foundational understanding of catechesis and the philosophy of Catholic education, in light of the teachings of the Church on the subject, and the principles upon which to establish effective and dynamic catechetical ministry with children, youth, young adults and adults in a comprehensive model.

    As well as the theological, pastoral and psychological principles, students will explore the practical aspects of catechetical ministry--pastoral approaches that can be applicable in a wide variety of situations: family, parish, school, ministry, and business.

    Using resources* from world renowned author and speaker Christopher West, join us as we unpack the Theology of the Body, Pope St. John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person—body, soul, and spirit—as male and female. These teackings will be augmented through reflection upon the wisdom and insight of St. Thérèse of Lisieux — an exclusive component compiled by Christopher West specifically for this course at St. Therese Institute!

    In an intimate environment of study and prayer, following the St. Therese students’ way of life, participants discover the deep significance of: what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God; why God created us male and female; how the physical union of man and woman is innately oriented toward life and love; and how this union is the essential foundation for a life-affirming society, all in the light of the doctrine of spiritual childhood and the Little Way of St. Thérèse.

    We can come to an understanding of human existence only through a proper understanding of human sexuality. West’s presentation of Theology of the Body in the context of St. Thérèse thought and spirituality can enable students to live more wholly integrated lives and discover that seeing the world through the lens of ToB is a key to deep rooted peace and joy.

    With reflection on the principles of interfaith dialogue and ecumenism established in the Second Vatican Council and developed during the recent pontificates, students will learn about the four stages in coming to an active faith in Jesus Christ and his Church: the grounds for a belief in God, the reasonableness for belief in Christ, the validity of the Catholic Church and its claims, and the necessity in this time of the new evangelization for an active and evangelical practice of the Catholic faith. Students will discuss questions including: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Etc.

    "Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence." (1 Peter 3:15)

    • Learn to speak to the heart of those who would like to believe in God, to believe in Christ, understand the Catholic Church, and be actively faith-filled.
    • How can we answer the questions like: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Why does the Catholic Church teach _____? What about the reality of evil in the world?
    • How do we respond charitably to the divisions that exist among the disciples of Jesus today.
    • How can the work of defending the faith really be used in service of unity among all believers?
    • How can apologetics be used in service of building authentic Christian unity? How can apologetics be truly ecumenical?

    "Welcome the new springtime which the Spirit is now bringing about in the Church… In his gifts the Spirit is multifaceted…He breathes where he wills. He does so unexpectedly, in unexpected places, and in ways previously unheard of… but he also shows us that he works with a view to the one body and in the unity of the one body." Pope Benedict XVI

It is a powerful tools to live out the teaching of the Church on what is often called "Theology of the Body".

    TeenSTAR (www.teenstar.org) is a developmental and age- and gender-appropriate curriculum for sexuality education for ages preteen to college-aged. The curriculum is rooted in sound moral, psychological and physiological principles, which uses the Billings method of understanding human fertility patterns "to teach responsible decisionmaking and communication skills in the area of sexual behavior and enhances teens' self-understanding and self-esteem." The TeenSTAR curriculum is consistent with the moral teachings of the Catholic Church on human sexuality and the understanding of the nuptial meaning of the human body as expressed in a theology of the body. TeenSTAR is taught effectively in countries throughout the world and can be offered in both secular and religious contexts.

Being Apostles of Hope: Ecumenical Apologetics (Matt Nelson) - SotF 2020

With reflection on the principles of interfaith dialogue and ecumenism established in the Second Vatican Council and developed during the recent pontificates, students will learn about the four stages in coming to an active faith in Jesus Christ and his Church: the grounds for a belief in God, the reasonableness for belief in Christ, the validity of the Catholic Church and its claims, and the necessity in this time of the new evangelization for an active and evangelical practice of the Catholic faith. Students will discuss questions including: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Etc.

    "Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence." (1 Peter 3:15)

    • Learn to speak to the heart of those who would like to believe in God, to believe in Christ, understand the Catholic Church, and be actively faith-filled.
    • How can we answer the questions like: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Why does the Catholic Church teach _____? What about the reality of evil in the world?
    • How do we respond charitably to the divisions that exist among the disciples of Jesus today.
    • How can the work of defending the faith really be used in service of unity among all believers?
    • How can apologetics be used in service of building authentic Christian unity? How can apologetics be truly ecumenical?

    "Welcome the new springtime which the Spirit is now bringing about in the Church… In his gifts the Spirit is multifaceted…He breathes where he wills. He does so unexpectedly, in unexpected places, and in ways previously unheard of… but he also shows us that he works with a view to the one body and in the unity of the one body." Pope Benedict XVI

    Interested in our Nine-Month Faith Formation Program? Or maybe you know someone else who wants to venture deeper into their faith and understanding of the Church?

    Experience the St. Therese program first-hand during our Come and See week, February 17-21, held conveniently during your reading week / spring break!

    Come for an afternoon, overnight, or for the whole week, and enjoy sports, community, music, and the opportunity to encounter God in a new way. There will be lots of flexibility: time for study, optional sit-in classes, and the chance to get answers to any questions you might have about the program.

    The application for the Faith Formation Program is free and can be found at www.St-T.ca/ApplyToday or through the 9-Month Program menu item. If you can’t make it to this Come and See, we also have our annual Lenten Conference (Feb 28-Mar. 1) for a mini-'come-and-see' opportunity. On top of that, we have our Springtime in the Faith course weeks (March - May) which are also great opportunities to experience St. Therese while receiving good faith formation.

    Information about all our upcoming events can be found at www.StTherese.ca/events

    The Christ is Alive! Weekend Retreat is offered for young disciples (ages 16–30) who have experienced the initial proclamation of the Gospel and desire to deepen their friendship with Christ.

    A key inspiration for this retreat is Christus Vivit, Pope Francis’s recent letter to young men and women, which speaks of the importance of young people journeying with each other in life. The Christ is Alive! retreat, through Scripture, the sacraments, community, and prayer, provides an opportunity to grow in intimacy with Christ. From that foundation, young people will be better equipped to accompany others on the path of holiness. Small groups from parishes or high schools are encouraged to attend together, so that participants can continue accompanying each other as they go forward.

    Using resources* from world renowned author and speaker Christopher West, join us as we unpack the Theology of the Body, Pope St. John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person—body, soul, and spirit—as male and female. These teackings will be augmented through reflection upon the wisdom and insight of St. Thérèse of Lisieux — an exclusive component compiled by Christopher West specifically for this course at St. Therese Institute!

    In an intimate environment of study and prayer, following the St. Therese students’ way of life, participants discover the deep significance of: what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God; why God created us male and female; how the physical union of man and woman is innately oriented toward life and love; and how this union is the essential foundation for a life-affirming society, all in the light of the doctrine of spiritual childhood and the Little Way of St. Thérèse.

    We can come to an understanding of human existence only through a proper understanding of human sexuality. West’s presentation of Theology of the Body in the context of St. Thérèse thought and spirituality can enable students to live more wholly integrated lives and discover that seeing the world through the lens of ToB is a key to deep rooted peace and joy.

    With reflection on the principles of interfaith dialogue and ecumenism established in the Second Vatican Council and developed during the recent pontificates, students will learn about the four stages in coming to an active faith in Jesus Christ and his Church: the grounds for a belief in God, the reasonableness for belief in Christ, the validity of the Catholic Church and its claims, and the necessity in this time of the new evangelization for an active and evangelical practice of the Catholic faith. Students will discuss questions including: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Etc.

    "Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence." (1 Peter 3:15)

    • Learn to speak to the heart of those who would like to believe in God, to believe in Christ, understand the Catholic Church, and be actively faith-filled.
    • How can we answer the questions like: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Why does the Catholic Church teach _____? What about the reality of evil in the world?
    • How do we respond charitably to the divisions that exist among the disciples of Jesus today.
    • How can the work of defending the faith really be used in service of unity among all believers?
    • How can apologetics be used in service of building authentic Christian unity? How can apologetics be truly ecumenical?

    "Welcome the new springtime which the Spirit is now bringing about in the Church… In his gifts the Spirit is multifaceted…He breathes where he wills. He does so unexpectedly, in unexpected places, and in ways previously unheard of… but he also shows us that he works with a view to the one body and in the unity of the one body." Pope Benedict XVI

    TeenSTAR (www.teenstar.org) is a developmental and age- and gender-appropriate curriculum for sexuality education for ages preteen to college-aged. The curriculum is rooted in sound moral, psychological and physiological principles, which uses the Billings method of understanding human fertility patterns "to teach responsible decisionmaking and communication skills in the area of sexual behavior and enhances teens' self-understanding and self-esteem." The TeenSTAR curriculum is consistent with the moral teachings of the Catholic Church on human sexuality and the understanding of the nuptial meaning of the human body as expressed in a theology of the body. TeenSTAR is taught effectively in countries throughout the world and can be offered in both secular and religious contexts.

    TeenSTAR was developed in the 1980's by Sr. Hanna Claus, MD, an OB/GYN doctor, consecrated religious with the Medical Mission Sisters, and Director of the Natural Family Planning Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

    Interested in our Nine-Month Faith Formation Program? Or maybe you know someone else who wants to venture deeper into their faith and understanding of the Church?

    Experience the St. Therese program first-hand during our Come and See week, February 17-21, held conveniently during your reading week / spring break!

    Come for an afternoon, overnight, or for the whole week, and enjoy sports, community, music, and the opportunity to encounter God in a new way. There will be lots of flexibility: time for study, optional sit-in classes, and the chance to get answers to any questions you might have about the program.

    The application for the Faith Formation Program is free and can be found at www.St-T.ca/ApplyToday or through the 9-Month Program menu item. If you can’t make it to this Come and See, we also have our annual Lenten Conference (Feb 28-Mar. 1) for a mini-'come-and-see' opportunity. On top of that, we have our Springtime in the Faith course weeks (March - May) which are also great opportunities to experience St. Therese while receiving good faith formation.

    The Christ is Alive! Weekend Retreat is offered for young disciples (ages 16–30) who have experienced the initial proclamation of the Gospel and desire to deepen their friendship with Christ.

    A key inspiration for this retreat is Christus Vivit, Pope Francis’s recent letter to young men and women, which speaks of the importance of young people journeying with each other in life. The Christ is Alive! retreat, through Scripture, the sacraments, community, and prayer, provides an opportunity to grow in intimacy with Christ. From that foundation, young people will be better equipped to accompany others on the path of holiness. Small groups from parishes or high schools are encouraged to attend together, so that participants can continue accompanying each other as they go forward.

    PLEASE DO NOT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE! Thanks :) -- James

    A key inspiration for this retreat is Christus Vivit, Pope Francis’s recent letter to young men and women, which speaks of the importance of young people journeying with each other in life. The Christ is Alive! retreat, through Scripture, the sacraments, community, and prayer, provides an opportunity to grow in intimacy with Christ. From that foundation, young people will be better equipped to accompany others on the path of holiness. Small groups from parishes or high schools are encouraged to attend together, so that participants can continue accompanying each other as they go forward.

    STAY students 2019 2020The retreat is faciliated by the St. Therese Apostolic Year (STAY)students, who are completing their third year of study in St. Therese Institute's Faith Formation Program.

    Using resources* from world renowned author and speaker Christopher West, join us as we unpack the Theology of the Body, Pope St. John Paul II’s integrated vision of the human person—body, soul, and spirit—as male and female. These teackings will be augmented through reflection upon the wisdom and insight of St. Thérèse of Lisieux — an exclusive component compiled by Christopher West specifically for this course at St. Therese Institute!

    In an intimate environment of study and prayer, following the St. Therese students’ way of life, participants discover the deep significance of: what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God; why God created us male and female; how the physical union of man and woman is innately oriented toward life and love; and how this union is the essential foundation for a life-affirming society, all in the light of the doctrine of spiritual childhood and the Little Way of St. Thérèse.

    We can come to an understanding of human existence only through a proper understanding of human sexuality. West’s presentation of Theology of the Body in the context of St. Thérèse thought and spirituality can enable students to live more wholly integrated lives and discover that seeing the world through the lens of ToB is a key to deep rooted peace and joy.

    With reflection on the principles of interfaith dialogue and ecumenism established in the Second Vatican Council and developed during the recent pontificates, students will learn about the four stages in coming to an active faith in Jesus Christ and his Church: the grounds for a belief in God, the reasonableness for belief in Christ, the validity of the Catholic Church and its claims, and the necessity in this time of the new evangelization for an active and evangelical practice of the Catholic faith. Students will discuss questions including: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Etc.

    "Always be prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you, yet do it with gentleness and reverence." (1 Peter 3:15)

    • Learn to speak to the heart of those who would like to believe in God, to believe in Christ, understand the Catholic Church, and be actively faith-filled.
    • How can we answer the questions like: Can you prove the God exists? Was Jesus divine? Why does the Catholic Church teach _____? What about the reality of evil in the world?
    • How do we respond charitably to the divisions that exist among the disciples of Jesus today.
    • How can the work of defending the faith really be used in service of unity among all believers?
    • How can apologetics be used in service of building authentic Christian unity? How can apologetics be truly ecumenical?

    "Welcome the new springtime which the Spirit is now bringing about in the Church… In his gifts the Spirit is multifaceted…He breathes where he wills. He does so unexpectedly, in unexpected places, and in ways previously unheard of… but he also shows us that he works with a view to the one body and in the unity of the one body." Pope Benedict XVI

    The program's name, Teen STAR (Sexuality Teaching in the context of Adult Responsibility) expresses the mission of the program. According to Dr. Hanna Klaus (OB/GYN and foundress of the Teen STAR Program), Teen STAR gives teenagers and young adults "concrete ways of responding to the corresponding emotional changes and pressures," while empowering them through a better understanding of their own biological fertility patterns. It is a powerful tools to live out the teaching of the Church on what is often called "Theology of the Body".

    TeenSTAR (www.teenstar.org) is a developmental and age- and gender-appropriate curriculum for sexuality education for ages preteen to college-aged. The curriculum is rooted in sound moral, psychological and physiological principles, which uses the Billings method of understanding human fertility patterns "to teach responsible decisionmaking and communication skills in the area of sexual behavior and enhances teens' self-understanding and self-esteem." The TeenSTAR curriculum is consistent with the moral teachings of the Catholic Church on human sexuality and the understanding of the nuptial meaning of the human body as expressed in a theology of the body. TeenSTAR is taught effectively in countries throughout the world and can be offered in both secular and religious contexts.

    TeenSTAR was developed in the 1980's by Sr. Hanna Claus, MD, an OB/GYN doctor, consecrated religious with the Medical Mission Sisters, and Director of the Natural Family Planning Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

    This one week certification workshop will enable students to teach the TeenSTAR curriculum as a part of their individual apostolate.
