Join the St. Josemaria Institute, on February 17 and 24, for our 2022 Virtual Winter Conference! We are delighted to welcome our featured speaker, Damon Owens, who will be presenting “God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Family” with a two-part presentation and a live discussion. Damon will explore some of the practical applications of the teachings of St. Josemaria on marriage and the family as schools of love and sanctity. He will also include highlights from his popular Theology of the Body teaching ministries, joyTOB and Joyful Ever After.

Damon Owens, international speaker and evangelist, is executive director of joyTOB and Joyful Ever After. The first executive director of the Theology of the Body Institute, Damon is dedicated to encouraging and educating couples to understand and live marriage and family life together with joy through St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body.

Host of the 2020 Catholic Marriage Summit, presenter at the 2019 Catholic Family Life Symposium, 2017 USCCB Convocation of Catholic Leaders, and 2015 World Meeting of Families, Damon keeps a full international speaking schedule on the good news of marriage, sexuality, Theology of the Body, Theology of the Family, adoption, and NFP. In 2018, Pope Francis honored Damon with his Benemerenti Papal Medal in recognition for his work in support of marriage and family. Damon and his wife Melanie have eight children and live outside of Philadelphia.
