TheBODYMatters Children's CurriculumPre-K–8th

Theology of the Body Evangelization Team

TOBET’s Episcopal Advisory Board confirmed the decision to create an original, age-appropriate curriculum for Pre-School to 8th grade children not only to protect them from these negative influences, but also to help them to see the wonder of being made in God’s image and likeness.

The Board is comprised of: 

Archbishop Aquila of Denver, Colorado

Bishop Mike Sis of San Angelo, Texas

Bishop David Konderla of Tulsa, Oklahoma

Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas

Bishop Mark Seitz of El Paso, Texas

Bishop Kevin Vann of Orange, California

Between 1978 and 1984, Pope St. John Paul II delivered a series of Wednesday audiences that eventually became known as the Theology of the Body. This profound teaching offered what St. John Paul called an “adequate anthropology”—an examination of what it means to be human, made in God’s image and likeness, and how that reality is made visible in our human bodies. TOBET seeks to share this life-affirming message with others through educational resources: books, programs, talks, and seminars will offer hope and healing to a culture in need.
