THE CULTURE PROJECT
Comes to the Diocese of Cleveland and Nativity!
The Culture Project (TCP) missionaries partner with Catholic schools and parish youth ministry teams to speak about human dignity and sexual integrity (intro. video). TCP offers students an encounter with young people who are a living witness and demonstrating a life of counter-cultural virtue.
Be a part of these dynamic discussions and invite anyone to join you! The first talk will be October 27, Sunday, at 6:30PM. There will be a talk specifically for middle and high school aged students AND a separate talk for parents, guardians, and any interested adult.
