Sat, Mar 24 @ 9am | AOC Sanctuary
We are doing something a little different for our Spring Breakouts this year and are partnering with Christ Church to bring the world’s foremost speaker on Theology of the Body to Austin next Sat, Mar 24, from 9am-4pm. This is a rare opportunity for you to hear a compelling and thought-provoking presentation of Pope John Paul II’s positive view of how God created our bodies as presented by Christopher West. This seminar will cover:
An Encounter with Christ the Bridegroom – An introduction to the Theology of the Body
Original Man – Who man and woman were created to be in the beginning
Eschatological Man and Celibacy – Our eternal destiny and how it relates to the celibate vocation
Marriage and Humanae Vitae – Living the Theology of the Body in the vocation of marriage
Questions and Answers – Implementing Theology of the Body in everyday life
The day is intended for all parents, and for students in grades 7-12. Childcare is provided, but space is limited. Registration is required, and paper tickets will need to be printed and shown at the door. We hope you can make it and will bring a friend!
2nd Trimester Report Cards
Don't forget to print or save a copy of your child(ren)'s report card(s)! The link that you received from the Registrar on Fri, Mar 2, will close next Fri, Mar 16.
Students in the Schools of Logic and Rhetoric receive character marks via report cards. To better understand these marks, please click HERE for descriptions.
Students in high school credit-bearing courses have one week to initiate any grade disputes via email to the teacher. Since we have Spring Break after the release of report cards, the grade dispute deadline for the 2nd trimester will be Fri, Mar 24.
