Discovering Christ is a 7-week journey that explores and encourages Catholic discipleship and helps participants grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. This is accomplished through the grace of God by praying together, teaching, and supporting one another in some of the basic disciplines and truths practiced by Christians since the early Church.

Following Christ continues the journey by further exploring our relationship with Jesus and encouraging Catholic discipleship.

Evangelization is a purposeful effort to introduce people to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His transforming love. The ChristLife series is a three-step evangelization process that is changing lives and transforming parishes. The series consists of three essential elements: discover, follow, and share.  

We each know people in our lives, communities, and even parishes who wonder about the meaning of life. God gives us the responsibility to open doors and provide spaces of encounter with the personal love our Lord Jesus has for people who are searching for the meaning of life.

Following Christ will take place:
Thursday evenings 6:30-8:30pm
January 11th - February 22nd, 2018
