Clergy Attends TOB Seminar

THE Theology of the Body for Clergy was held at the Lay Formation Center in San Carlos Seminary, Guadalupe last June 22, 2017. The clergy, coming from different parts of the Philippines and as well as from different countries around the globe, listened to Damon Owens, Executive Director and the founder of joytob (Joy to Be), a teaching ministry dedicated to proclaiming the joy of being made in the image and likeness of God. He is also the first Executive Director of the Theology of the Body Institute in Philadelphia, U.S.A.


The event was divided into four sessions, namely:

  • Theology of the Body – A True Man Education
  • The Joy to be From – Identity
  • The Joy to be with – Relationship
  • The Joy to be with – Gift and Mission


Owens shared, “Morality cannot be addressed until you have stablished the right understanding of who you are.”


After each session, the clergy had the chance to clarify or ask questions about the topics. One priest asked if the Theology of the Body was exclusively for believers.


To answer this, Owens said that TOB is a topic series that both believers and non–believers can be interested in learning about. (Tina Quiambao)
