Are you looking for an inspirational speaker who can dynamically deliver the freeing message of chastity? It is often through attending a chastity talk, as they are sometimes 'woefully' called, that the seed of conversion is planted in a young persons heart.
For the past six years, the CEI has been pleased to sponsor and host nationally recognized chastity speaker, Jason Evert, at dozens of high schools, middles schools and parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Chicago and beyond. Jason's sense of humor and hard facts appeal to teens and adults alike. An apologist for Catholic Answers, Jason recently co-authored "Theology of the Body for Teens," a curricula for teaching the profound truth and beauty of human sexuality as taught by Blessed John Paul II.
In addition, we have invited Brian Butler from Dumb Ox Productions multiple times to give Theology of the Body for Teens Trainings. He recently led a Theology of the Body for Teens - Youth Leadership Training Retreat for some Chicago High School Teen Leaders.
Don't hesitate to contact us to schedule Jason or Brian for a presentation, we are taking reservations for future dates.
