Off the Hook: God, Love, Dating, and Marriage in a Hookup World

Catholic Information Center, 360 Division Ave. S., Ste. 2A, Grand Rapids, MI 49503 View Map
Thursday, April 23 - 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

With Timothy P. O'Malley, PhD,

Professor of Theology at the University of Notre Dame

The hookup culture is about much more than the quest for pleasure. It offers an easy way out of real communication and lasting relationships. It also teaches us to treat each other as objects for personal satisfaction. Even those who reject the hookup culture can still be negatively affected by it and develop poor habits of relating to others. Join us as Dr. Timothy O’Malley shows how God’s plan for love serves to heal the wounds of a hookup culture and is a medicine for what ails our understanding of sex, romance, love, and marriage.

This presentation will help young people find help grappling with the Church’s countercultural understanding of sex, love, and marriage. Parents and pastoral workers will discover a refreshing presentation of the Catholic theology of marriage and wise counsel about forming young people in the Church’s vision. Newly married, and even long-married couples will find hope, courage, and the promise of sacramental love that can sustain them for a lifetime.  ($10 donation requested)
