Who is Christopher West?
If you have heard or read anything about Saint Pope John Paul the Great’s Theology of the Body there is a very good chance you may have heard of Christopher West. One of the best known proclaimers of TOB, Christopher West has spent years studying and spreading the good news of love, life and sex that is the Theology of the Body, making it accessible to the ordinary person.
Christopher West is a proud husband and father of five. His global lecturing, best selling books and multiple audio and video programs have made him the world’s most recognized teacher of John Paul II’s “Theology of the Body” – a bold, biblical vision of love and sexuality that takes us to the “cor” (Corinthians 13:4) of what it means to be human. His work has been featured in The New York Times, on ABC News, Fox News, MSNBC, and countless Catholic and Evangelical media outlets.
We are excited to announce that Christopher West will be visiting South Africa this year (2017)! We know that this will be a blessing for the church in South Africa and will be working tirelessly to make his trip to SA a success.

In addition to a two day seminar in Edenvale we will be hosting a day for priests and religious in Johannesburg, a session for seminarians, priests and religious in Pretoria, an evening for youth, an evening for married couples, a presentation in Cape Town for laity and another for priests and religious. This will all be given by Christopher West and his team. For more info and to book click here.
