The Diocese of Duluth's 13th 
Annual Diocesan Assembly

"Made in His Image ... Made for Love."

Presented by

Colin MacIver 

International Speaker from Ascension

Colin will help us better understand God’s plan for love and how we can share this good news with others.  As highlighted by our current culture, he will show contraception’s harm to women, families, and society.  He will highlight the beauty and joy that accompanies true, sacrificial love.

“50 years after Pope Paul VI’s encyclical, “Humanae Vitae” (“Of Human Life”), rediscover God’s plan for love!” 

This event is open to all. 

Colin has expertise in the Theology of the Body.  Read Colin's Bio here.
