at Trafalgar Hall, Notre Dame University
1 Suffolk Street, London SW1Y 4HG
Louise Kirk is UK Co-ordinator for the international PSHE programme Alive to the World and author of Sexuality Explained: a Guide for Parents and Children. She serves on the Commission for the New Evangelisation in Shrewsbury Diocese and writes and speaks regularly on topics promoting family life and true education in sexuality. She is married with four children (aged 23 – 17).
The last decades have seen an explosion of ideas about human sexuality which can make it difficult to give young people clear guidance which makes sense of their Catholic faith. Louise will give an optimistic picture of how recent science backs up Church teaching, offering young and old alike a deeper understanding, than has ever been known before, of the truth of the human person. She will suggest ways of teaching which confirm the parents as prime educators while involving the active support of school and parish within current sex education guidelines.
The lecture will be followed immediately by a short reception at which light refreshments will be served.
