DISCOVERING CHRIST (coming this fall)
Discovering Christ is a seven-week experience where anyone and everyone, from the baptized in the pews to the unbaptized, is invited to hear the Good News and personally encounter Jesus Christ. Discovering Christ helps people enter into or renew a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, experience the love of God the Father, and be empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as God’s children. Discovering Christ consists of seven weekly sessions and a retreat day. The weekly sessions include four components: a meal, prayer time, a video teaching, and small group discussion.
SOUP & SCRIPTURES (EVERY LENT)
Join us during the Lenten season at Soup & Scriptures! There, we reflect on the Sunday readings in community. It is a time of sharing God’s Word in our lives. It will help you bring it alive in your heart and it prepares you for the Sunday Liturgy!
PRAYER & LIFE WORKSHOPS
Would you like to deepen and enrich your prayer life and live more happily as a result? Have you wanted to spend more time in prayer but not know how to go about it?
The Prayer and Life Workshops is a program that teaches us to pray -- not by just reciting words, but by developing a deeper personal experience of God. The workshops are about Prayer: they provide a practical method for learning to pray in an ordered and progressive manner. Each week a prayer method is introduced; it is practiced during the session and then at home each day. The participants are given the structure and the discipline they need to advance in their prayer life.
The workshops are also about Life: the participants progressively undergo a transformation in their lives.
They are freed from anxieties, fears, and sadness.
They are healed from the wounds of life.
They become more patient, understanding and merciful.
Ultimately, our goal is to know Jesus better and to imitate him in his love and humility.
The workshops, developed by the Franciscan priest Ignacio Larrañaga, are given in over forty countries and have been approved by the Holy See.
