Conference on God, Love & Sex
Saturday 1 December 2018, 10.30am–4pm, Nottingham University
Everyone knows babies don't pop out of thin air, so we thought you might want to hear the Catholic perspective, on the best way to 'do it'? 'It' being everything about coupling - the way Pope John Paul 2 set out in his 'Theology of the Body'. It took him 5 years, but keynote speaker Edmund Adamus and friends have just one day at this local conference.
Adamus is a theologian whose career so far spans over 28 years working across 5 different Catholic dioceses in the field of evangelisation, faith formation and various fields of pastoral care. The conference is hosted by the Diocese of Nottingham Marriage and Family Life Commission. This is not an SPUC event, but still, we're quite excited!
