Black Rock Retreat Center

Quarryville, PA

Taught by Bill Donaghy

Course Description:

This course introduces students to the key themes of the 129 Wednesday audience addresses that comprise John Paul II’s Theology of the Body.  Particular attention will be paid to the imago Dei, fall and redemption, Christian ethics and ethos, freedom and person, gender and vocation.  Students will be encouraged to journey from “head to heart” in applying the theological concepts they learn to their own lives and relationships.

 

All our week-long retreats include:

  • Five days of learning & interactive lecture (30 hours of master’s level instruction)
  • Fantastic workbook so you can focus on receiving vs. note-taking
  • Daily Mass, adoration, and confession
  • Accommodations & delicious meals
  • Time for relaxation and networking
  • Gorgeous grounds to soak in God’s natural beauty
  • Optional round trip shuttle from Philadelphia International Airport
