General Catechesis from a Theology of the Body Perspective
Angelo Cardinal Scola says that every tenant of the Catholic faith can be taught from a theology of the body perspective (c.f. Witness to Hope, p. 343).

Monica Ashour, a TOB expert and former teacher holding two Masters degrees from the University of Dallas, presents a holistic understanding of the faith from this unique and engaging perspective. Catechists can then use TOBET presentations and lesson plans in their classrooms.

Sacramental Preparation

Confirmation
This workshop weaves together for the catechist a holistic understanding of the faith, then focuses on Confirmation and its practical significance for teens.

Holy Communion and Reconciliation
Geared toward catechists of second graders, this workshop provides tools for the educator to reach young hearts, planting in them the seeds of faith.

TOBET4ENGAGED CertificateMarriage Preparation for Engaged Couples
Complete with books and a facilitator guide, the TOBET4ENGAGED workshop gives necessary tools for reaching engaged couples. Those who complete this formation will officially be able to train engaged couples, who receive this certificate to show their pastor or deacon.

“I have TOBET out every year. It is amazing how engaged my students are—over 175 of them, glued to their seats in learning the wonders of TOB. I highly recommend TOBET’s perspective of St. John Paul’s work.”
