A Course that could Change the Course of Your Life!

June 12 - 17, 2011
Quarryville, Pennsylvania
Taught by Bill Donaghy

Has your life, your marriage, your vocation been changed because of the life-giving teaching of Theology of the Body? Have you wanted to dive deeper into a study of TOB by attending our Theology of the Body I course, but just haven't had the chance? Don't miss out on attending our next course, offered June 12-17, 2011 at the Black Rock Retreat Center in Quarryville, Pennsylvania.

This course offers:

Five days of learning and interactive lecture (30 hours of classroom time)
Time for relaxation and networking with other TOB enthusiasts surrounded by 100 acres of beautiful wooded countryside.
Daily Mass, adoration and confession will be available.
For your convenience, round trip shuttle service from the Philadelphia International Airport is available.

John Paul II's Theology of the Body is not only intellectually stimulating. The truths it proclaims are life-changing, especially for those wounded by the lies of our sexually-charged culture. This "Head and Heart" Immersion Course offers both stimulating academic study and seeks to facilitate personal integration of the material, helping students journey from "head to heart."

The Theology of the Body Institute is pleased to offer this one-of-a-kind course in conjunction with the Institute for Priestly Formation and Creighton University. Theology of the Body Institute speaker, Bill Donaghy, will teach this immersion course.

Don't miss this opportunity to join TOB enthusiasts from around the globe! This course won't be offered again until the Fall of 2011, so it will sell out quickly!

What have past participants said about the course?

“I learned that Jesus can transform me into who I was meant to be and that I can help promote a culture of life from learning TOB since now it is a part of me – of who I am.”


“One of my favorite parts of the course was the realism of the week, being the presence of other people who actually desire to learn and live this redemption”


“I am now receiving the Eucharist with a new vision of its significance”


"I came for the "head" studying of theology and philosophy, but I quickly learned why the course has the name it does, "head and heart."


“This course brought my wife and I a new understanding of the sacramentality of our marriage”


“Bill’s teaching style was wonderful – personal and varied through effective use of media, his obvious passion for the material. I enjoyed meeting so many beautiful people from around the world. I loved the retreat atmosphere – daily mass, adoration, confession, that our classroom was a chapel”

Learn More About Bill Donaghy

Bill began working in the fields of mission and evangelization in 1999. Through his previous work with the Pontifical Mission Societies, he has given hundreds of talks on the spirituality of mission to young people, sharing his experiences of missionary work in Haiti, El Salvador, and the Dominican Republic, as well as parish and young adult ministry in the United States.

In October of 2000, Bill was chosen to represent the United States in a special tribute for the Jubilee of Missionaries in Rome. He was given a simple cross by Pope John Paul II and called by the Holy Father to “bring Jesus back to your country.”  It was this incredible experience that led Bill to begin the Mission Moment; a teaching ministry dedicated to the New Evangelization. Through talks, retreats, and missions, Bill points to the very core of what we believe as Catholics; to the depths of the encounter, communion, and mission that God is calling each of us to in building "a culture of life" and a "civilization of love," in the words of Pope John Paul II. Bill is also heard on Sacred Heart Radio every month on the Sun Rise Morning Show, commenting on the music of our culture as seen through the lens of the Theology of the Body.    

Through collaboration with the Theology of the Body Institute, mentored and trained by Christopher West, Bill speaks widely on Pope John Paul II's groundbreaking teaching on human sexuality. He has spoken in Canada and throughout the United States to a variety of audiences. Bill holds an Associate’s Degree in Visual Arts and received his Bachelors in Philosophy and a Masters in Systematic Theology from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary. He teaches theology at Malvern Preparatory School, as well as Immaculata University, and lives outside Philadelphia, PA with his wife and two children.
