ATLANTA—Adults and teens will have the chance to hear from a nationally known speaker and author with a focus on the virtue of chastity.
In collaboration with Holy Trinity Church, Peachtree City, and St. Monica Church, Duluth, the Office of Formation and Discipleship has announced the second annual national speaker series featuring Jason Evert. He will be coming to three locations in the Archdiocese of Atlanta to speak to middle and high school teens and adults.
Evert has traveled to five continents to bring the message of chastity to more than one million teenagers. Evert earned a master’s degree in theology, and undergraduate degrees in counseling and theology, with a minor in Philosophy at Franciscan University of Steubenville.
He is a best-selling author of more than ten books, including “If You Really Loved Me: 100 Questions on Dating, Relationships, and Sexual Purity,” “Theology of the Body for Teens” and “How to Find Your Soulmate without Losing Your Soul.” He and his wife Crystalina are frequent guests on radio programs throughout the country; their television appearances include MSNBC, Fox News, BBC, and EWTN. Together, they lead an international alliance of young people who promote chastity in more than 40 countries.
The registration deadline is Jan. 8, 2014. The teen talk at Holy Trinity Church is already full, so please register at another location. Registration is done at parishes, so those interested should contact their youth ministers to register.
