Zoe for Life Sponsors Teen and Young Adult Retreat

Have you ever wondered why sex is such a complicated topic in religion?  There doesn’t seem to be a connection between our spiritual self and our physical self.  But there is.  And there is a retreat scheduled in Parma, Ohio, ready to explain the association.

On Saturday, October 24, 2015, ZOE for Life  is sponsoring a retreat for teens and young adults titled: “What Does God Have to do with Sex?”

Speakers include Fr. Mark Hodges of St Stephen Orthodox Mission (OCA,) Melissa McCutcheon of Life Coach at Planning4Joy, and Subdeacon Michael Tabeling of St. Theodosius Cathedral.  A representative of Students for Life America will also be presenting.

The day begins at 9:30 am and ends with Vespers at 5 PM.  Registration is free, but they ask that you bring a non-perishable food item with you.
