An international speaker will enlighten parents and educators on how to teach children about sex in a virtuous manner.

Katrina Zeno will lead a workshop called “Giving The Talk and Walking the Walk” May 30. She will offer advice on how to promote the virtues of gift and sacrifice, instruct children of various ages, and weather the current “cultural storm” of sex education.

Katrina has a solid foundation,” said Jody Garneau, the workshop coordinator at St. Anne’s, Abbotsford – where the talk will occur. She said Zeno’s teachings are influenced by her understanding of St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body lectures.
“I wanted to bring in Katrina to support families in one of the most difficult and challenging topics they have to face,” Garneau said. “She has a gift for presenting material in a way that the average person can grasp.”

“This workshop is meant to be practical; not just a study session. (Zeno) emphasizes the beauty of the human person and the gift of our sexuality,” Garneau added, explaining Zeno’s teachings on how to weave the language of chastity and self-gift into home and family life.

This will be Zeno’s third visit to Vancouver. She has presented her seminars to women of the Archdiocese and seminarians at Christ the King.

The workshop will take place at St. Ann’s Parish May 30. Admission is by donation and Garneau requests that attendees bring their own lunch. Call 604-856-5602 or email to register.
