Parents, teachers, catechists, counselors, pastors, youth ministers and other adults who work with adolescent girls are invited to attend “My iGirl: How She’s Wired and How to Connect,” at St. Albert the Great Church, 1395 Girard Drive, Dec. 8 from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
Maria Knuth, a teacher and consecrated woman with Regnum Christi, will present the program which is based on a book she wrote about adolescent girls.
A press release about the program noted that teens and preteens today have grown up saturated in technology — “texting, chatting and Facebooking, all the while jamming to their iPod.” This program “will look at today’s teenage girl from a variety of perspectives, covering the spiritual, social, physiological and psychological aspects that make her tick … or click,” it said.
The cost to attend is $25 per person, $40 per couple or $200 for a table of eight. A continental breakfast will be provided. To register by the Dec. 1 deadline, send a check made payable to “Louisville Beacon Women’s Group” to the attention of Dawn Della Bella at St. Albert the Great, 1395 Girard Drive, Louisville, Ky., 40222.
