Theology of the Body for Teens is just what youth ministers have been waiting for. It s a resource that facilitates the teaching of the wonderful message from John Paul II in a way that teens can understand. --Marissa Esparza Diocese of San Diego
The TOB conference for Teens was a phenomenal event that people are still talking about!!! The training was an invaluable resource for parents, youth ministers and volunteers. The Leaders Guide, resources, and stories that were shared will be utilized in homes, schools and parishes over and over again. Our youth ministers are already asking when the next training will be. --Amy Deedy Archdiocese of Philadelphia
