Everyone agrees that our young people need education in chastity, but few seem to know how to go about imparting that essential information to them. In Catechetical Formation for Chaste Living (USCCB, 2008), the US Bishops define chastity as the virtue that “directs our sexuality toward authentic love and away from using persons as objects for sexual pleasure” and offer a framework that will help young people to develop that virtue. In this webinar, Sister Kieran Sawyer will offer an approach to sexuality education that she believes corresponds to the core content of the Chaste Living document. Based on the acronym LIFE (love, infatuation, friendship, and exploitation), her approach has been used successfully with teens for many decades.
