A Keynote Panel with Christopher West, Dr. John Grabowski, Adriana Vasquez, Katrina Zeno, and Damon Owens (Moderator) 

Wondering if anybody else is struggling with the idea of divorce? Or how TOB is relevant for infertile couples? What does a merciful response to same-sex unions look like? This keynote panel will feature a multi-faceted discussion on the state & role of the family in modern culture, and why the “ancient institution” of marriage matters today. Dr. John Grabowski will share his unique insights as Director of the Moral Theology/Ethics area at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., member (with his wife, Claire) of the Pontifical Council for the Family, theological advisor to the U.S.C.C.B. Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family, and Youth, and widely published author in the areas of moral theology, marriage, sexuality, and bioethics. Adriana Vasquez, currently a doctoral student in Systematic Theology at CUA, has taught undergraduates and diocesan leaders in moral theology, marriage, and Natural Family Planning. Katrina Zeno is the coordinator of the St. John Paul II Resource Center for Theology of the Body and Culture for the Diocese of Phoenix, AZ and has been speaking nationally and internationally on the Theology of the Body for 18 years. Christopher West is a global lecturer, author, and the founder of Theology of the Body Institute and the Cor Project. Don't miss this opportunity to connect the dots from John Paul II's writings to modern man's questions about gender, love, life, and family relationships.
