Embody Summer Theology Institute
Beauty, Justice, and Faith in Action
Join a community of high school girls who share your values on the beautiful campus of Saint Mary’s College. You’ll explore beauty and justice through activities and studying theology. You'll stay all week in our residence halls, eat in the dining hall, and learn from College professors, as well as Saint Mary’s students who will serve as mentors.
During your time here you will have the chance to:
- DEVELOP your faith through theological instruction, reflection and discussion, and interactive learning projects.
- EXPLORE your own beauty and learn to recognize yourself as beloved by God.
- ENGAGE in service locally to learn about the issues that challenge many of our neighbors.
- UNDERSTAND how to live out all that you have learned.
At Embody, you'll discover new dimensions of your faith and learn how to make it part of all the aspects of your life. Work through your personal questions with the support of camp faculty, mentors, and peers.
