...join Facebook Group: Karol Wojtyla Discussion Group at the Angelicum

The aim of the non-academic discussion group is to promote, especially among those who will be in priestly and/or parish ministries, a great love, respect, and understanding of the precious gift of human love, as is found in the life and work of Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II), so that they can, in turn, bring these riches to the Catholic communities in which they live and work. Through a study and prayerful discussion on the topics of the family, marriage, the Theology of the Body, the Culture of Life as the antidote to the Culture of Death, the New Evangelization, and other related topics, participants grow in their understanding of the gifts that Karol Wotyla still offers to men and women today: a beautifully deep and personal invitation to live the Gospel message in all its fullness as well as an invitation to build the Kingdom of God here on earth as he intercedes for them in Heaven. Everyone is welcome!
