from Jo Christof, St. Peter Respect Life Committee
The St. Peter Respect Life Committee is excited to announce another Theology of the Body Retreat for High School Girls to be held Saturday, February 8 and Sunday, February 9th.
We will talk about what it means to be a young, dynamic, Catholic woman in today’s world. The retreat will introduce you to John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and what it means for your life! This retreat will include talks, small groups, Mass, adoration and time for confession.
The Retreat is led by Samantha Kelley, the Founder and President of FIERCE Athlete (fierceathlete.org). Sam is a young Catholic woman, trained in teaching the Theology of the Body. She holds a Master’s degree in Catholic Psychology, is a former Division 1 soccer player, and now rows competitively!
Marie DiCecco has been a high school health educator for the past 35 years and has recently completed an Allied Health program in women’s health care. She is passionate about educating young females on the beauty of their femininity. Marie believes that the foundation of the “feminine genius” – as described by Pope St. John Paul II – lies in her capacity to know that she is endowed with specific feminine gifts that encourage her to become the woman she is called by God to be.
