2019 marks the 40th year since Pope St John Paul II began presenting to us an in-depth biblical explanation illustrating the awesomeness of sexuality, marriage and celibacy for the Kingdom. In a world devastated in so many ways by a distorted vision of human sexuality, he gave us new lenses to see in a most beautiful way a redemptive vision of the human person.

Delivered over 129 General Audiences from 1979 to 1984, this collection has been collectively known as the “Theology of the Body” (TOB).

This conference celebrates the TOB, helping us understand it better, and more importantly, how to apply it in our lives that can heal and redeem the brokenness that has battered so many of us today.

It is jointly organised by the Archdiocesan Commission for the Family (ACF) together with the Apostolate for Catholic Truth, Natural Family Planning, Catholic Medical Guild and the Catholic Theological Network.

Date: Sat 26 Oct 2019
Time: 10.00 AM – 4.00 PM | Sunset Mass at 4.00 PM
Location: St Joseph’s Institution (Lecture Theatre 2)
Tickets: $20 per person (Free for Priests and Religious)

What’s my real purpose in life? Why were we created male and female? Why sexual desire? Is it good or bad? What is sex for? What about celibacy? What exactly is Love? And Lust?

Come and check these out (and more!) in this one-day course. Let us delve a little more into the TOB of Pope St John Paul II and allow it to correct our lenses, giving us a renewed and redemptive vision of the human body.


Date: Mon 28 Oct 2019 (Deepavali, Public Holiday)
Time: 9.00 AM – 6.00 PM
Location: CANA, The Catholic Centre

Family Life with Jesus

How important it is for our families to journey together towards a single goal! We know that we have a road to travel together; a road along which we encounter difficulties but also enjoy moments of joy and consolation. And on this pilgrimage of life we also share in moments of prayer.

Let us not lose confidence in the family! It is beautiful when we can always open our hearts to one another, and hide nothing. Where there is love, there is also understanding and forgiveness. To all of you, dear families, I entrust this most important mission – the domestic pilgrimage of daily family life – which the world and the Church need, now more than ever.

— Pope Francis
