PISCATAWAY – The Diocese of Metuchen will host a two part workshop series entitled Theology of the Body on Oct. 21 and Nov. 18 from 7 – 9:30 p.m. at the St. John Neumann Pastoral Center, 146 Metlars Lane. One of the teachings of Pope John Paul II, Theology of the Body is the late pontiff’s integrated vision of the human person – body, soul and spirit.
Presenting both sessions will be David Hajduk, M.A., educator, author and campus minister. Hajduk earned his Master’s degree in Systematic Theology from Immaculate Conception Seminary, Seton Hall University, where he received the Pope John Paul II Award for Academic Excellence. He is currently an adjunct professor of Systematic Theology at Seton Hall and serves as Campus Minister at Delbarton School, Morristown.
Hajduk will address and simplify the complex teachings found in Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, which provides a modern response to some of the most fundamental and important questions of human existence such as: What is the meaning of our lives? Why were we created male and female? Why do we often experience loneliness, disillusionment and resentment in human relationships? What is the key to personal happiness?
During the two part series, participants will gain a basic understanding of this profound teaching and leave with some tools to allow them to integrate it into their ministries and everyday lives.
The workshops are open to all, including single persons, young adults, engaged/married couples, maturing adults and widowed persons.
