A Beautiful Design A Parent Night on Theology of the Body About This Parent Night This Parent Night begins with a social time for parents to get to know each other. During the Gather, parents work through a handout that challenges them to reflect on how life was different when they were growing up. They discuss their answers and then watch a video during the Proclaim that introduces them to the Church’s teaching on sex and the body and gives them practical tips on how to talk to their children about this topic. Parents discuss the video in their table groups during the Break and join their son or daughter for a Renewal of Baptismal promises during the Send. Goal of This Night The goal of this Parent Night is to introduce parents to the Theology of the Body and provide a framework for them to speak to their children about pornography, while also being challenged in their own attitudes and understanding about sex and sexuality.

They have become distorted in the world we live in. – We were created in the image and likeness of God. Our bodies are a reflection of God and deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. – Understanding God’s purpose for sex helps us to understand why certain behaviors and forms of media, like pornography, are destructive.
