Theology of the Body

The office develops and implements educational opportunities to expand upon the formation of the faithful on the Theology of the Body, which informs and serves as a foundation for Catholic social teaching.

The Diocese of Raleigh partners with Family Honor to provide and promote a family-centered Catholic approach to Chastity Education.  Through a variety of parish-based, family-centered programs, Family Honor presenters bring parents and their children together to discuss the true meaning of love, chastity, fertility, friendship, true self-worth, sexuality and much more in an age-appropriate manner.

The Truth About Pornography: In this episode of "A Catholic Life," Dave DiNuzzo of TrueManhood.com speaks with host Billy Atwell about the true impact and damage caused by pornography.
