FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE
Understanding God's plan for Human Sexuality when your child has intellectual or developmental disabilities
Virtual Event--September 26th from 7:30 to 9:00 PM
Parenting a child with intellectual or developmental disabilities brings many blessings and some unique challenges. Issues related to sexuality can seem to add more problems and raise important questions. This live, virtual presentation, developed exclusively for the parents of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities of all ages, explores how the Catholic Church's teaching on human sexuality can help families navigate these challenges and others while also giving them deeper insight into God's plan for their children. Time during the presentation will also be dedicated to discussion among parents about personal experiences and concerns as well as for asking questions of the presenters. Presenters are Mary O'Callaghan, Ph.D., and Clare Kilbane, Ph.D. For more information and to register, visit dioceswfwsb.org/wonderfully-made
Eucharistic Reflection for September

For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him." (Jn 6:54-56). In the Eucharist, bread and wine become the Body and Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Christ without ceasing to appear as bread and wine. "This mysterious change is very appropriately called by the Church transubstantiation." In the Eucharist, with the eyes of faith we see before us Jesus Christ.
