Created by Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology, the Catholic Center for Family Spirituality is designed to respond to the challenge of Pope John Paul II to create new institutes dedicated to theological and pastoral dimensions of family life. The Center's cornerstone activity is the William J. Toth Summer Institute, which offers graduate-level courses about theological and family life topics.
